Vis-ร -vis the deranged idiot Trump’s suggestion that we all douse and dose ourselves with ultra-violet light to sanitise ourselves against COVID-19 (once his recom- mendation for hydroxy- chloroquine did not prove deadly enough), this entry from the archives of Weird Universe seems especially resounding and relevant. Do think outside of the box—definitely—as hand-washing and inoculation, variolation and vaccination were once fringe ideas but do not put yourselves and those around you at a greater risk because a desperate demagogue suggests you try it, misinterpreting what he wants to hear as a great many Americans hark to, their situation precarious and healthcare contingent on specious hope and continued employment.
