While Jumping Into A Pool Of Lava Has Not Been Approved For Fighting COVID-19, Americans Have Urged Trump to “Try It”
Trump says he is taking hydroxychloroquine though health experts question its effectiveness. Americans are now encouraging the president to see what else may or may not prevent COVID-19, for example, diving headfirst into a vat of 2,200°F lava.
The initial proposition came from Britney Johnson or @doglover42 via twitter. President Trump read the tweet and saw it as a challenge rather than the playful quip it was intended to be. Just like hydroxychloroquine, there have been no published studies stating that jumping into a vat of lava may prevent COVID-19. President Trump was quick to point out that, “hey there are also no published studies that prove jumping into a pool of lava WON’T prevent COVID-19.
“A couple of weeks ago, I started taking the drug so it’s about time I jump into this scalding pool of lava and do my due diligence,” said Trump.
Experts predict Trump’s assertion that jumping into a pool of lava might prevent the contraction and the spread of COVID-19 to be true. “You can’t contract a virus if you have previously been burnt to death,” said Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Fauci.
