At the White House coronavirus briefing on Thursday, Trump suggested that people could be treated with “ultraviolet or just a very powerful light” to kill the virus after a presentation from a medical expert showed that the virus might not live as long in warmer and more humid temperatures. Trump then also mentioned an “injection” of “disinfectant” to deter the virus.

“I see the disinfectant that 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? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

Trump did not specify the kind of disinfectant.
