President Trump has a few ideas about how to treat COVID-19 patients — based on some promising lab findings — but the scientists around him ain’t so sure.
The Prez played amateur M.D. during Thursday’s coronavirus task force briefing … after Bill Bryan — Science Director for Dept. Homeland Security — revealed lab testing shows UV rays from sunlight dramatically cuts the half-life of the virus. He added that bleach and isopropyl alcohol also kill the virus either instantly or within minutes.
That set off a lightbulb for Dr. Trump. He said — out loud, mind you — what if we could put UV rays and bleach inside a patient’s body? His suggestion was maybe that would be an easy cure.
You gotta see the dance Bryan had to do — explaining to reporters and the President it just doesn’t work that way … all while desperately trying to NOT embarrass POTUS.
To be clear … the scientists are NOT saying congregating under the UV rays of the sun will stop the spread of the coronavirus. Don’t do that.
