It's been another dark week as coronavirus continues to devastate the world.

After President Trump shockingly suggested "injecting disinfectant" as a remedy for the ongoing medical pandemic, the company who owns Dettol and Lysol has issued a warning that urges people against his dangerous recommendation...

Not only that, but emergency services in the US have now come out to claim that the number of calls inquiring about ingesting disinfectant has rose dramatically.

Thankfully there is one uplifting story in the news. The story of how a baby beat the deadly virus, despite heart and lung problems.

It's been another dark week.

Coronavirus continues to devastate the whole world and it feels like there are very few positive stories in the news...

President Trump has, once again, caused shock and outrage across the nation.

At his most recent press conference, the President made some pretty dangerous claims about the deadly virus currently sweeping the globe. But this isn't the first time he's come under fire...

Trump hasn't exactly been praised for his handling of the ongoing medical crisis.

He started out by remaining stubbornly confident in America's resilience to the virus.

Back in January, shortly after the initial outbreak, he was quizzed on his thoughts on the virus, in which he replied: “It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine."

And, even when the number of cases here in America started to climb...

He remained calm, and repeatedly stressed that there was nothing to be too worried about.

The President persistently fought against the media regarding the pandemic.

And, at one point, even dubbed the virus as being a "fake news media" conspiracy.

And, as the months trickled by...

President Trump simply wouldn't budge from his stance on the virus and even went on to compare it to the common flu. This was perhaps one of his most dangerous and false statements about the virus and caused plenty of outrage amongst both Americans and people all over the world.

Things needed to change.

And fast. As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths grew here in the States, people were growing increasingly more concerned with Trump's blaze attitude regarding the pandemic.

But, thankfully, Trump seemed to have a sudden change of heart.

On March 13th, mere days after he compared the pandemic to the common flu, he finally declared a national emergency.

This move freed up around $50 billion in federal funding...

And promised a new screening website and more drive-by medical tests.

It seems that now, President Trump is finally taking the pandemic seriously.

In a press conference last month, Trump admitted: "We have a problem that a month ago nobody ever thought about."

The President has been doing some serious backtracking.

And insisted that he "felt it was a pandemic long before it was declared a pandemic."

But this isn't necessarily a good thing.

Though Trump is finally taking the virus seriously, he has been dishing out some pretty concerning advice that could ultimately put thousands of lives at risk.

And, on Thursday, he made his most shocking claims yet.

At a press conference, the President discussed potential cures for the virus and went on to bring up the topic of disinfectants.

He casually suggested that these disinfectants could, in some way, be "injected" into the body as a method of combatting the virus.

"I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute," he said. "Is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that."

Even for Trump's standards, these claims are completely outrageous.

People are horrified that a man with such power and influence would offer such reckless and potentially deadly advice to his country.

Since his shocking claims, medical experts have been frantically urging people to not inject themselves with chemicals.

If you are unwell, go to a doctor. By no means should you ever pump such harmful and toxic chemicals into your body.

And some people have already taken the President's advice...

Dr. Jonathan Spicer tweeted: "No joke - we had a patient swallow Lysol as a #disinfectant a couple of weeks ago to prevent [the virus] infection. He made it out of the hospital after his gastrectomy...This kind of nonsense is absolutely mind-blowing."

Things have been getting seriously out of hand...

And now, British firm Reckitt Benckiser (RB), which manufactures the popular disinfectants, Dettol and Lysol, has been forced to issue a statement.

They have warned people against the use of their disinfectants as a remedy for the virus.

Their statement read: "As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion, or any other route). As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information." All cleared up?

Emergency Services spoke out.

And they've revealed that since Trump made these comments, calls about ingesting disinfectant have risen.

Officials in Maryland sent out a warning.

After a sharp increase in calls about ingesting detergent, officials in Maryland sent out a warning, urging people not to swallow it.

They said:

ALERT: We have received several calls regarding questions about disinfectant use and #COVID19. This is a reminder that under no circumstances should any disinfectant product be administered into the body through injection, ingestion or any other route.

New York reported similar issues.

Officials in New York reportedly also saw a rise in calls about ingesting detergent and disinfectant. The New York Daily Post claims there were around 30 calls made about the above, compared to just 17 this time last year.

Trump needs to seriously reevalute his strategy...

Because things cannot go on like this for much longer. And, while he isn't offering deadly remedies, he is looking into pardoning notorious Netflix criminals. Keep scrolling to hear his opinion on Tiger King star, Joe Exotic...

But thankfully there is one positive story.

And it's the story of six-month-old, Erin, who suffers from heart and lung problems.

She was diagnosed with COVID-19.

Following a major operation for issues with her heart and windpipe, Erin was diagnosed with Coronavirus. The odds were seriously stacked against her.

Amazingly she's beat the virus.

Her father said:
Erin has beaten the virus. It hit her hard with a few ups and downs but we wanted people to know coronavirus doesn't have to be a death sentence for people with pre-existing conditions.
She is all smiles and talking to herself.
Her mum added that she is so 'proud' and thanked all of the staff working at Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

What a warrior.

Erin truly is an inspiration to us all during these dark days. Such a warrior!
