Dr. Birx: ‘It Bothers Me’ That Trump’s Disinfectant Remarks Still in New Cycle
White House coronavirus task force response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx largely defended President Donald Trump’s recent suggestion that injecting disinfectants could treat coronavirus, saying on Sunday that it “bothers” her that this is still in the news cycle as the president was just “musing” in the subject.
During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Birx was confronted about the president using an “emerging result” from the Department of Homeland Security that showed sunlight, heat and disinfectants could weaken the spread of the virus to question whether ingesting bleach could be a potential cure.
“What should the American people know about disinfectants and the human body?” CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked.
