Although President Donald Trump has said that he was only being sarcastic when he suggested people inject disinfectant into the body to cure coronavirus, there are some Americans who do not think that this idea is a joke. In fact, according to a recent survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), some people in the U.S. are using disinfectant and cleaning products in alarming ways during the pandemic.
 
The CDC conducted the online survey on 502 U.S. adults in May, shortly after Trump made his mind-boggling and dangerous comments about disinfectants, and published it on Friday. The survey found that 39 percent of respondents had engaged in at least one high-risk practice not recommended by the CDC to prevent SARS-CoV-2, the official name of the novel coronavirus that causes the disease covid-19.

The CDC carried out the survey after a spike in calls to poison centers about exposures to cleaners and disinfectants during the pandemic. It sought to obtain “contextual and behavioral insight” into this increase in calls and to inform timely and relevant prevention strategies.
