The NCDC, Nigerian Center for Disease Control has warned Nigerians against drinking bleach as a cure for coronavirus.
This is coming after the acting head of the US Department for Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate; William Bryan presented a result of US government research.
In the research, it was indicated that coronavirus could weaken more quickly when it is exposed to heat and sunlight.
It also claimed that bleach could kill the virus in the respiratory fluid or saliva within five minutes. Isopropyl alcohol would even kill it faster.
The NCDC, in a recent post on twitter, warned Nigerians not to attempt drinking bleach as the government would continue to battle the pandemic.
The disease agency made it clear that the bleach could expose persons to mire health complications and even lead to death.
