Is drinking bleach a Covid-19 cure?

The president initially asked one of his dumber questions on April 23, 2020 after William Bryan, undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security, presented a study that found sun exposure and cleaning agents like bleach have an adverse effect on the coronavirus. Bryan was referring to the use of disinfectants on surfaces and in aerosols, but Trump asked whether the chemicals could be used in a potential COVID-19 treatment, as well. He hasn’t learned much since.

Bryan, who has no background in anything to do with public health policy, was thrust into the national spotlight after his presentation on the effects of heat on COVID-19 was followed by President Donald Trump’s already infamous tangent on “disinfectant.”
