Is there no limit to what the Russians will do to support their puppet?

Seriously, making up some cockamemy research study just to support Trump's long-ago comments about injecting UV into COVID victims.....

 

Newsweek:

Russia Developing Coronavirus Treatment That Disinfects the Body With UV Light From Inside

Scientists in Russia are developing a treatment for coronavirus that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to disinfect the body from the inside, Andrei Goverdovsky, from state nuclear agency Rosatom, has said.

 

In an interview with Country Rosatom, the agency's newsletter, Goverdovsky said physicists at the Institute of Physics and Power Engineering (IPPE) are currently developing methods to combat viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. He said they have called the project "luminous gas."

 

"So far, no one has managed to hold UV disinfection inside a person," he said. "We figured out how to do this. We select molecules and gas components that when inhaled remain activated and emit ultraviolet light directly in the lungs. We hope that in addition to coronavirus, our method [can be used to] treat tuberculosis, oncology and other diseases."

 

Further details on how the technique works and what tests had been carried out as part of the project were not available.

 

The idea of putting UV light inside the body to treat coronavirus was highlighted by President Donald Trump during a press conference where he made a number of controversial remarks regarding possible COVID-19 therapies. At the briefing, on April 23, Trump asked if there was something that could be done to use disinfectant to kill the virus "by injection."

 

He also discussed the use of UV light, which in laboratory tests has been found to inactivate the virus. "I said supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way," he said. "And I think you said you're going to test that too. So, we'll see, but the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute—that's pretty powerful."

 

At the time, Trump's comments on injecting disinfectants were widely condemned by scientists and health providers. The idea of using UV light, however, is a concept currently being researched by scientists at Cedars-Sinai, Los Angeles, and pharmaceutical company Aytu BioScience.

I guess sometimes it takes someone thinking outside the "Box" to get people to experiment with unconventional methods. 

I'm sure Trump didn't come up with that himself but rather was told or read about experimental procedures being tried to fight the Wuhan Flu. If we get a new way to combat infections and diseases out of this then that's great. I'm sure we will have people claiming it is bogus and they would never use those procedures merely because Trump mentioned it. They would never give him the satisfaction of knowing their life was saved because of the treatment, they have said it before with Hydrochloriquine. They would rather they and their loved ones died then take the drug.

Gotta laugh after seeing this thread this morning, and then just half an hour ago was watching Super Password on Buzzer, and sure enough........

 

Commercial comes on and it is for a personal small wand type thing that emits UVC light to disinfect surfaces. They go thru the usual mini infomercial pitch and "You too can get one for only 2 Payments of $29.99, Buy a second one and get FREE SHIPPING!"

 

:laugh:

 

But hey, if it really works.............which it well may....subject was brought up already almost 3 months ago in a thread in the Mass forum by Angler #1.

The next thing to rail about would be a crazy idea like chemotherapy to treat that what ails people.  Can you imagine such a novel approach being put forward by anyone.   Hope Trump does go there.  You know.  There is no there there, if Trump says it.
