God, people are stupid.

People are getting sick and even dying after swallowing hand sanitizer, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday. Four died and others have suffered impaired vision or seizures, the CDC says.

Hand sanitizer is everywhere and is useful for cleaning the hands during the coronavirus pandemic. But it’s not safe to swallow, the CDC cautions. “Alcohol-based hand sanitizer products should never be ingested,” the CDC said in a new report.
A CDC team described the cases of 15 adults in Arizona and New Mexico hospitalized for methanol poisoning after consuming alcohol-based hand sanitizers between May and June.

The CDC is not sure why people might drink hand sanitizer. Children might do it by mistake, and some people may think it’s a good substitute for alcoholic drinks. It is not.

So they’re not sure why people might ingest a disinfectant?

Could it perhaps be related to the fact that the idiot in the White House suggested that doing so might kill the Coronavirus? 

I mean if people are already kind of stupid and then you appoint another stupid person as an authority figure, these are the kinds of things that can happen. 

Stupid people need smarter people to help them not be so stupid, that is why we typically elect intelligent people to run our country.
