After President of the United States of America, Donald Trump suggested tests on novel coronavirus (COVID-19) patients by injecting them with disinfectant, Dettol warned that disinfectant should never be ingested “under any circumstances”.

A statement by the Reckitt Benckiser (RB), the British owner of Dettol and Lysol said, “As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route).

It further added, “As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information.”

Doctors from around the world have warned against this idea and have termed it as “irresponsible” and “dangerous”. The doctors claimed that Donald Trump’s idea could kill people.
