On Fox News Friday, reporter John Roberts defended President Donald Trump’s suggestion that using UV lights inside the body could be used to treat coronavirus.
“You know, the concept of some sort of way of getting ultraviolet light inside the body … the president was correct,” said Roberts. “In fact, earlier this week, a company out of Colorado announced that it is studying a new device that would embed LED lights that emit UV rays into the breathing tubes of ventilators, and that way you could actually attack the virus inside the trachea.”
“I’m told that this research is still in its early phase, it hasn’t yet been tried in patients, but it may be something to look at for the future,” added Roberts.

Trump furious that he can’t do rallies in Florida after its GOP governor made COVID spread ‘worse’: report
President Donald Trump is reportedly furious at one of his allies for taking his advice.
According to Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman, the president is angry that he can't hold any of his trademark campaign rallies in Florida amid its weeks-long surge in COVID-19 cases.
What's more, Sherman's sources say Trump is putting the blame for this predicament at the feet of Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has been eager to follow the president's commands to reopen state economies even as the country records more than 50,000 infections and 1,000 new deaths from the novel coronavirus every day.
Enraged group of women beat Chili’s hostess with a wet floor sign over social distancing rules
A 17-year-old hostess at a Louisiana Chili's restaurant was attacked by a group of more than 11 women when she asked them to abide by social distancing guidelines, WLBT reports.
"I couldn’t believe, like over two for 25s, and three for 10s, I got attacked," Kelsy Wallace said. "My general manager and my other managers tell us we cannot sit a table bigger than six because of the corona[virus]."
That's exactly the rule Wallace tried to enforce when the women requested to sit together at one table. When she brought her manager, the situation escalated and Wallace exchanged words with the women.
‘Smoking gun’: Scientists find ‘unambiguous evidence’ of coronavirus lurking in hospital air
Scientists have found "unambiguous evidence" that the coronavirus can float in the air and infect cells.
A team of virologists and aerosol scientists successfully isolated live virus from aerosols collected up 16 feet away from patients hospitalized with COVID-19, much farther away than the recommended six feet of social distance, reported the New York Times.
“If this isn’t a smoking gun, then I don’t know what is,” tweeted Dr. Linsey Marr, an expert in the airborne spread of viruses but was not involved in this study.
