I love Florida. I love many things about the state, including many of the people living there. But I swear, nearly every time I see a weird news story it comes from there. It's like there's something in the water or in the sunshine... I don't know. But as you guessed, this story comes from the Sunshine state also...
Okeechobee County Commissioner Bryant Culpepper, who at an emergency meeting claimed the way to beat coronavirus is with a blow dryer.
“One of the things that was pointed out with one of the foremost doctors that has studied the coronavirus says that the nasal passages and nasal membranes are the coolest part of the body. That’s why the virus tends to go there, until it then becomes healthy enough to go into the lungs.
This sounds really goofy, and it did to me too, but it works.
Once the temperature reaches 136 degrees Fahrenheit, the virus falls apart and disintegrates.
And I said, ‘How do you get the temperature up to 132 degrees?’
The answer was you use a blow dryer because it’s capable of doing that. So you hold a blow dryer in front of your face and you inhale with your nose and it kills all the virus within your nose.”
Many doctors and The World Health Organization also called B.S., saying the coronavirus can still be transmitted in hot and humid climates.
Culpepper has since apologized on his Facebook page.
