I hope nobody is hurt this time.

The company that makes Lysol and other cleaning products issued an unusual warning on Friday morning, telling people not to improperly ingest or inject their product into their bodies after President Donald Trump dangerously suggested that doing so might kill the coronavirus.

"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)," the company wrote in a press release, highlighting portions of the statement in bold.

During his daily press briefing on Thursday, Trump falsely theorized about disinfectants as well as ultraviolet light as possible cures for the disease after a scientist at the Department of Homeland Security spoke about how the government had tested whether sunlight and disinfectant could kill the virus on surfaces and in the air.
