On Thursday, during the White House coronavirus taskforce briefing, President Donald Trump attracted widespread criticism after he suggested research into whether Covid – 2019 might be treated by injecting disinfectant into the body.

He also appeared to propose irradiating patients’ bodies with UV light, an idea dismissed by Dr Deborah Birx at the briefing.

On Friday, President Trump said his comments had been made “sarcastically”.
