Trump’s disinfectant remarks follow letter from leader of group touting ‘cure’

The Guardian has revealed that Donald Trump’s suggestion that disinfectant could be used as a remedy against coronavirus came after Mark Grenon, the leader of a group touting bleach as a Covid-19 cure, wrote to the US president earlier this week.

“Trump did not specify where the idea of using disinfectant as a possible remedy for Covid-19 came from, and the source for his notion remains obscure,” the newspaper said. “But the Guardian has learned that peddlers of chlorine dioxide – industrial bleach – have been making direct approaches to the White House in recent days.”

Grenon told the president that chlorine dioxide is “a wonderful detox that can kill 99% of the pathogens in the body”, adding that it “can rid the body of Covid-19”.
