Sunlight is the best disinfectant. That’s a popular phrase first uttered by Justice Louis Brandeis. He meant shining light on politicians.

But it’s not just for politicians. HHS scientist William Bryan presented the results of a coronavirus study at Thursday’s White House briefing. And the study showed a combination of sunlight and humidity to be effective against the virus. Bleach and isopropyl alcohol too.

You can see some of the findings in the chart below.

This excited the president.

And Trump, being Trump, wondered aloud if the light could be brought inside the body “through the skin or some other way.”

He continued:

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 it does a tremendous number (INAUDIBLE) interesting to check that so that you are going to have to use medical doctors with but it sounds interesting to me so we will see but the whole concept of the light the way it kills it in one minute that’s–that’s pretty powerful. 

Real Clear Politics

Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant

The makers of Lysol soon warned not to inject their product.

Too much Trump? The president took no questions at Friday’s briefing.

    i still find it sad that even with Trump’s comments you have to tell people not to inject Lysol. Doesn’t say much for the brains of our fellow citizens!

    Well, the light is almost at the end of T.Rump’s tunnel!
