The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that Americans have misused bleach to thwart COVID-19.
For example, they’re gargling with bleach — or adding it to food. This comes after Donald Trump publicly pondered injecting cleaning products to keep the virus away.
The CDC surveyed hundreds of adults. Nearly four-of-10 admitted to using household cleaners in a potentially fatal way. Four percent claimed to “gargling diluted bleach.” About 20 percent had been hand-washing or bathing with Clorox while a similar fraction cleaned their foods with bleach.
