US President Donald Trump has suggested the possibility of studying injecting disinfectants into COVID-19 patients or bringing UV light "inside" their bodies to kill the deadly virus, drawing immediate flak from health experts while a leading disinfectant producer urged people not to listen to such risky speculation.
Gov. Larry Hogan said they have received numerous calls looking for guidance following President Trump's comments on disinfectants.
In his tweets on Saturday, Trump seemed to go back on the remarks he had made the previous day.
According to Axios, Trump is considering stopping holding daily briefings and may appear before the press only when there are "victories" to announce.
Over the past three weeks, the tally comes to more than 13 hours of Trump - including two hours spent on attacks and 45 minutes praising himself and his administration, but just 4½ minutes expressing condolences for coronavirus victims. Trump will either stop appearing or talk less at his daily briefings about the coronavirus pandemic.
Fox News contributor and former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy reacts to President Trump and Democrats clashing over the coronavirus response. "But it does kill it, and it would kill it on the hands, and that would make things much better", Trump said on Friday from the White House.

NY expects to see a budget-busting $13.3 billion drop in tax revenue through next March amid the pandemic, Cuomo said. After construction and manufacturing, he said businesses would reopen based on how essential they are.
Gowdy said Trump has been fed up with the "D.C. media" who he said promoted the Democrats' agenda to launch numerous investigations into his administration.
Republican leaders and pollsters told The Times that the president's briefings on the pandemic are putting a dent in his own campaign, even though aides say Trump's seen them as a boost that can get him before a prime-time audience while rallies are on hold.
"As a scientist and a public health official and a researcher, sometimes, I worry that we don't get the information to the American people that they need, when we continue to bring up something that was from Thursday night", she said on CNN's "State of the Union".
US President Donald Trump on Saturday said that his press conferences were not worth this time as he was mostly asked "hostile questions" by a section of American media.
Trying to wriggle out of the backlash he obtained for his outlandish solutions, Trump on Friday mentioned that he was being sarcastic. The most frequent target of Trump's attacks during the briefings was Democrats (48 times, over roughly 30 minutes), followed by the media (37 times, over roughly 25 minutes); the nation's governors (34, over 22 minutes); and China (31 times, over almost 21 minutes).
