How so? It reads a bit like a joke but a quick google search shows the guy and his company exist, and peddle bleach as a cure for all sorts of stuff. He's a proper nutter.

The most shocking part is that it's twice as much as the same period last year. There must be a group of people generally believing that drinking bleach is a good idea

Unfortunately there are always people who leave it within children's reach, read some days ago that with schools closed they already had a growth in the number of kids who drank it.

Re: Coronavirus

From the Belgian health authorities, we have a detailed report regarding corona.

Interesting to see only 8% of corona deaths are confirmed corona cases, the rest 92% are "possible corona cases" in the retirement homes. Over 50% of the total corona deaths happened in retirement homes.
