About  a third of Americans surveyed by the US Centers for Disease Control and  Prevention have used some kind of risky cleaning practice to stop the  spread of Covid-19, the CDC said on Friday.

People  have put bleach their food. Others have gargled or inhaled it. And some  have washed their bodies with household cleaning and disinfectant  products.

None of this cleaning behavior is recommended by the CDC. But this gap  in understanding how to safely clean and handle cleaning products during  the Covid-19 pandemic may explain why there’s been a sharp increase in  the number of calls to poison centers during the pandemic.

TVNL Comment: You just know that these people also believe everything else Trump says.  How sad that ignorance is so rampant.
