Professional wrestler ‘claims to inject himself with Lysol and thanks Trump’ in sick coronavirus stunt – The Sun

A FORMER professional wrestler claims to have injected himself with Lysol in a sick coronavirus stunt.

In a video posted to social media, ex-ROH Champion Pierre Carl Ouellet appeared to “inject” himself with a an unknown liquid before spitting a mouthful of gasoline on a tombstone and setting it alight.

The Canadian professional wrestler, better known by his ring name PCO, referenced Donald Trump’s White House press conference, where he claimed that disinfectant and UV light could be used to cure COVID-19.

President Trump has since claimed the remarks were “sarcastic” following immediate criticism from medics across the globe who warned of the potentially fatal danger of injecting disinfectant.

The FDA, doctors and cleaning product companies have issued warnings not to ingest or inject disinfectants in any way.

In the disturbing video, PCO appeared to administer Lysol into his arm, however it is unclear if this is indeed the substance used.

He then went on to tell his viewers he was going to kill the coronavirus, before showing a tombstone with “Corona” written on it.

PCO then took a mouthful of gasoline and spit it on the cross to set it alight.

The Sun urges readers do not try and copy any of the incredibly dangerous and potentially lethal actions in the video.

PCO is known for posting bizarre videos to social media to show the world that he "is not human.”

He shared the video on Twitter, writing: “Perfect Vaccine for Perfect Creation One!”

“Many thanks to @realDonaldTrump for working along with D.Destro for the @ringofhonor Monster PCO IS definitely NOT HUMAN !!”

The video, which was widely shared, has since been deleted as many slammed the dangerous behaviour, warning social media users not to repeat or recreate any portion of what he did.

President Trump first touted the idea of using UV light or sunlight, questioning if there was a way that it could be used as a possible treatment after a DHS official presented data that shows how the virus dies quickly in sunlight at a Coronavirus Task Force briefing.

"So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it's ultraviolet, or just very powerful light  — and I think you said that that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going to test it," Trump said to head of DHS Science and Technology, Bill Bryan.

"And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you're going to test that too – sounds interesting," Trump said.

Trump also noted that the DHS showed how disinfectants – including alcohol and bleach – can be used on surfaces to kill the virus.

"And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that? By injecting inside, or almost a cleaning, because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it'd be interesting to check that," Trump said.

"So you're gonna have to use medical doctors for it but it sounds interesting to me. So we'll see. But the whole concept of the light the way it kills it in one minute, that's pretty powerful.”

Video from the White House Press briefing shows Coronavirus Task Force Expert Dr. Deborah Birx's reaction when he suggested using cleaner in the body.

Trump later questioned  Dr. Deborah Birx if it's possible to "apply light and heat to a cure" at the briefing.

Dr. Birx replied, "Not as a treatment," as seen in video from the press briefing.

Maryland officials have even had to clarify that "under no circumstances should any disinfectant product be administered into the body through injection, ingestion or any other route", after the state's emergency department received several calls regarding questions about disinfectant use.

Coronavirus Task Force Member and US Food and Drug Administration commissioner Dr. Stephen told CNN he would not advise using cleaners inside the body.

"I certainly wouldn't recommend the internal ingestion of a disinfectant," Hahn told CNN.

Dr. Wayne Carter, Associate Professor and Toxicology Lead at the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham, noted the harmful effects of ingesting disinfectants.

“Disinfectants and bleach are strong oxidizing agents, useful to kill bacteria or viruses when they are deposited on surfaces, but these agents should not be ingested or injected," he said in a statement.

"These agents can cause severe tissue burns and blood vessel damage. As with other potentially poisonous agents, it is the dose (amount taken into the body) that makes the poison, but ultimately, under no circumstances should members of the public ingest or inject disinfectants or bleach.”
