The CDC report found a gargle of disinfectant to prevent COVID-19

To gather information about the report, the researchers surveyed 502 people aged 18 to 86 in May.

The researchers found that nearly 40 percent of respondents said they were engaged in high-risk behaviors, such as spraying their bodies with disinfectant to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Other high-risk behaviors include applying bleach to foods such as fruits and vegetables; use of household cleaning and disinfecting products on the hands or skin; inhalation of household cleaning or disinfection fumes; and drinking or gargling dilute solutions of bleach, soapy water and other cleaning and disinfecting solutions.

“These practices pose a risk of severe tissue damage and corrosive injuries and should be strictly avoided,”

; the report said. “Although the adverse health effects reported by respondents cannot be attributed to their participation in high-risk practices, the link between these high-risk practices and the reported adverse health effects indicates the need for public communication on safe and effective cleaning and disinfection practices, aimed at preventing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in households. “

Respondents are from across the country, with 38% from the South, 24% from the West, 21% from the Midwest and 18% from the Northeast, according to the CDC report. Fifty-two percent of respondents are women. When broken down by race, 63% of respondents were non-Hispanic, 16% were Hispanic (any race), 12% were non-Hispanic, and 8% were multiracial or of another race / ethnicity.

The CDC recommends the use of disinfectants as intended, for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. It is also said that bleach should be used in a well-ventilated area. People should also take care to use protective equipment, such as gloves, when using detergents. Bleach should never be mixed with vinegar or ammonia, and only room temperature water should be used to dilute bleach. This can lead to “severe damage to lung tissue.”
