Lysol Issues Warning People Against Drinking or Injecting Products After Trump Briefing

Cleaning brand Lysol has been forced to issue a warning against people ingesting or injecting their products after President Donald Trump suggested that it was a cure for COVID-19.

"As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route)," the statement warned.

"As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information."

The warning comes after the president said the following:

"And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that? By injection inside or almost a cleaning?

"Because you see it gets in the lungs and does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it'd be interesting to check that. So you're going to have to use medical doctors, but it sounds interesting to me."
