In a press conference on April 24, 2020, President Donald Trump spoke to the mass public about using Ultraviolet radiation on humans. He believes that UV radiation will help cure Coronavirus. This statement does not take into account any previous medical experiments. But Mr. President just comes out blatantly with a weird scientific explanation. Technically speaking Ultraviolet radiation may have the ability to kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus. But, the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) just released a notice to prevent the use of UV light on humans.
President Donald Trump clearly has no knowledge of general science. Because no sane person will allow using UV light on people, let alone inject Lysol in your bodies. It seems like the President forgets about his mass following at times and just goes on and on about some rubbish he has heard on the internet.
Can Ultraviolet Radiation help eradicate Coronavirus?
Well, the answer to this is both Yes and No. Yes because at a certain amount of wavelength and exposure UV radiations have the power to kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus. But at the same point, it will kill the human being. Scientists around the world are trying to find a cure to remove the virus or immunize us, not kill it. President Trump once again proves his point of sheer brute force. He doesn’t care if the man dies as long as the virus is gone.

All UV authorities plead medical practitioners to not listen to the maniac President out there. The doctors are fighting a battle every day while the President of the United States sits down in a chair and delivers utter rubbish in the form of a speech.
UV radiations cause skin cancer, skin burns, total discoloration, eye damage, and in some cases inhibited skin pigmentation. It also has the ability to harm your reproductive system.
So, be a little bit more intelligent and do not listen to the advice given by President Trump. Do not inject yourself with Lysol, and do not go anywhere near Ultraviolet radiation.
