Donald Trump suggests injecting disinfectant to treat COVID-19

Medical experts have hit out at US President Donald Trump after he floated the idea of injecting disinfectant into the body to fight COVID-19.

Trump, already under fire for his coronavirus response, also appeared to suggest using ultraviolet (UV) light "inside the body".

His comments, which came on the day the US death toll from COVID-19 passed 50,000 people, sparked a backlash online.

Doctors and scientists were quick to discredit the suggestions and warned injecting disinfectant into people could be fatal.
