Two hospitalised in US after drinking disinfectant to 'prevent Covid-19'

The patients, in Georgia, who both have a history of psychiatric problems, are expected to make a full recovery. Gaylord Lopez, director of Georgia Poison Centre, said a man in his 50s, from southwest of Atlanta, was hospitalised after claiming to have drunk 16 ounces of bleach on Saturday. Mr Lopez told the newspaper: “I don’t know very many patients who will take 16 ounces, but then again, it is a psych history patient.” The following day, a man in his 30s, from Atlanta, reportedly consumed a combination of cleaning product Pine-Sol, mouthwash, beer and painkillers. He has also since been discharged.  It is not clear whether there is any link between the men ingesting the disinfectants and comments made by Donald Trump during a press briefing last week. By injection inside, or almost a cleaning?”  Mr Trump later said he had asked the questions sarcastically after he was criticised by experts. Two other Georgians also fell ill after consuming household cleaning products before Mr Trump’s comments, according to the AJC. Mr Lopez said he felt the public had misinterpreted the president’s remarks about injecting disinfectants when he had just been asking questions about the possibility of this as a treatment.

Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have developed a fever (i.e. have a higher than normal body temperature) because of infection with the new coronavirus. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). From previous analysis, we know coronaviruses do not survive long on objects, such as letters or packages.

There is no evidence that regularly rinsing the nose with saline has protected people from infection with the new coronavirus. There is some limited evidence that regularly rinsing nose with saline can help people recover more quickly from the common cold. However, there is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the new coronavirus. These include bleach/chlorine-based disinfectants, either solvents, 75 percent ethanol, peracetic acid and chloroform. Georgia Poison Centre, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and a number of cleaning product manufacturers have issued guidance warning people not to consume disinfectants. Advice from Georgia Poison Centre – one of 55 such facilities across America – also warns against the dangers of mixing cleaning products. The centre has seen a sharp rise in the number of people falling ill after mixing a combination of products together to clean surfaces and inhaling the fumes in the last two months.
