Trump suggests using light, heat as coronavirus treatment

Trump suggests using light, heat as coronavirus treatment
By Brett Samuels - 04/23/20 07:31 PM EDT



President Trump on Thursday suggested medical experts should study exposing the human body to heat and light as a treatment for the coronavirus during Thursday's White House briefing by the president's task force on the virus.

Trump's remarks followed a presentation from William Bryan, undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security.

Bryan presented the results of a study that showed the virus deteriorates more quickly when subjected to higher temperatures and humidity — a finding that quickly drew skepticism from other experts on social media and cable television given outbreaks in a number of places with warm climates, such as Singapore and Brazil.

Bryan presented data that found how long the virus can live on solid surfaces or in the air was cut significantly under high temperatures, higher humidity and when exposed to sunlight. He said his office was also studying how certain disinfectants might kill the virus more effectively than others, referencing isopropyl alcohol and bleach.

Trump latched onto the findings, inquiring multiple times about harnessing the light and heat as part of a potential cure.

"So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it's ultraviolet or just very powerful light — and I think you said that hasn't been checked but you're going to test it," Trump said. "And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside of the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you’re going to test that too. Sounds interesting."

Trump also asked if there was a way to use disinfectants on the body "by injection inside or almost a cleaning."

Bryan later cautioned that the agency's findings did not mean that sunlight will kill the virus, nor should going outdoors supersede social distancing guidelines put in place by state and federal leaders.

"It would be irresponsible for us to say that we feel the summer is just going to totally kill the virus … that is not the case," he said.

But he occasionally sent mixed messages, telling one reporter he would personally opt to hold a family gathering outside rather than inside during the summer and explaining that sunlight could have an effect at getting rid of the virus on playground equipment or other surfaces.

Asked if it was dangerous to give the impression Americans would be safe from the virus going outside, Trump doubled down on his suggestion to use the heat and light as a cure.

"Maybe you can, maybe you can’t ... I’m not a doctor. But I’m, like, a person that has a good you-know-what," Trump said, pointing to his head.

He then turned to Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, asking if she had ever heard of using "the heat and the light" to combat the coronavirus.

"Not as a treatment," Birx said. "I mean, certainly ... when you have a fever it helps your body respond. But I’ve not seen heat or light."

"I think it’s a great thing to look at," Trump said.

The U.S. has more than 873,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, including in a number of warm weather and humid climates, further raising questions about the sunlight's impact on the disease. New Orleans was one of the country's first hot spots, while Florida and Georgia have seen increasing cases.

Countries located near the tropics have also dealt with infections.

Yes Trump is using the press conferences to troll the media and the deep state. I get it. You guys don't see this. You think we're watching a straight game. We're not. The deck is stacked, and the plays are scripted. HCQ has got science behind it. The media is doing everything they can to downgrade it's potential. UV has science behind it. Trump threw it out there along with this idea of injecting disinfectant as a way to draw the fire of the media. He did it in the most silly way possible. It worked. The media is out there unloading with both barrels.

I find the whole thing hysterical, but again, I'm in on the joke. If I was dumb enough to believe that we've got a straight media, I'd probably be appalled too.

Frankly, I can't believe you guys don't see it by now. There are about a hundred time bombs about to go off at the same time and you guys are sitting here like cats watching a laser pointer absolutely baffled as to why you can't catch it.
Taco, you missed your cue. This is the part where you exit, stage left, and don't come back for a while.

He offers nothing to the board except conspiracy theories and idiot takes. I don't think I have ever seen him offer anything of value. I don't want anyone one banned but I just don't see why anyone engages him. If you ignore it, it will go away... maybe.

Injecting Mr. Clean. Wow, that's thinking outside the box!

Trump deserves a second term.

You guys haven't figured it out yet, even after four years of being utterly trounced by him.


Um, Taco, you ARE the joke.

Maybe Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick will draft this asshole Trump in the 7th round and he can retire as POTUS and be gifted a spot on the Patriots 53-man roster.

He is as good a match, talent wise, for being an NFL player as he is POTUS.

Great to see how so many DC subforum conservatives are jumping ship on this obvious dipshit.

TJ cant post right now because he is outside with his mouth wide open to the sun.

He will post when it gets dark and claim the Presidents treatment worked because he didnt come down with Covid today and nobody can prove he is wrong.

Is this accurate?

Conspiracy theorists, including those that center around the QAnon conspiracy, have also advocated for drinking a diluted form of bleach called Medical Mineral Solution, or MMS.

QAnon adherents falsely believe Donald Trump is secretly running a military operation to rid the government of satanic, child-eating cannibals, and many QAnon followers believe those same people are responsible for the virus. Prominent QAnon accounts celebrated Trump’s apparent nod to bleach consumption or injection, with one prominent QAnon YouTuber and MMS reseller calling it “a good ‘lung cleaner’” on Thursday night.
