People Used Bleach to Protect themselves from COVID-19

06/07/2020

A NEW SURVEY FROM THE Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 4% of respondents consumed or gargled diluted bleach solutions, soapy water and other disinfectants in an effort to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

Those people were among nearly 40% who reported using at least one method not recommended by the CDC in an attempt to reduce their chances of contracting the virus.

Of the respondents, close to 20% said they washed produce with bleach. Nearly the same percentage reported using a household disinfectant on their hands or skin.
