Washington (CNN)Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Sunday that his state has received “hundreds of calls” from residents asking about the effectiveness of ingesting disinfectants to treat coronavirus after President Donald Trump dangerously suggested that it could be a possible treatment for the deadly virus.

Trump suggested during a White House coronavirus briefing on Thursday that ingesting disinfectants could possibly be used to treat people who have the virus, prompting cleaning product companies and state health officials to issue warnings about the dangers of doing so. The President also suggested sunlight might be a treatment.
Hogan, who has sparred with Trump at times during the crisis, said Sunday it’s “always critically important … for a leader to put out the facts and to be as open and honest and transparent as possible.”
    “And I think it’s critical that the President of the United States, when people are really scared and in the middle of this worldwide pandemic, that in these press conferences that we really get the facts out there,” he said. “And unfortunately, some of the messaging has not been great.”
    The comments from Hogan come even as some Republicans and administration officials downplayed the President’s suggestion, with Sen. Bill Cassidy, a Louisiana Republican who is also a doctor, casting doubt earlier Sunday on whether people would actually inject themselves with disinfectants.
    “The President speaks in such a way, people are not going to inject themselves. And when I hear this kind of conversation around that, I think to myself, we should be talking about how do we use data to guide where we can reopen the economy, not about what the President said on Lysol because really no one is going to inject themselves with Lysol,” Cassidy told CNN’s John King on “Inside Politics.”
      Later Sunday morning, Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, sidestepped the opportunity to amplify warnings from health officials about the dangers of ingesting disinfectants.
      Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper what the American people should know about disinfectants and the human body, Birx instead defended the President’s tendency to muse aloud about his ideas as he processes new information and suggested that the media had missed the point of the White House presentation.

        Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
        Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
        My blog discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
        If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.
        I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

      5. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

      18. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
        using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
        The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
        something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
        ask!

        each time i used to read smaller articles that
        as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading here.

      21. scoliosis
        I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is
        needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
        pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
        Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
        Cheers scoliosis
