Okeechobee County Commissioner Bryant Culpepper was forced to apologize for his COVID-19 cure.
Scientists and doctors across the world are fighting to find a cure for Coronavirus. Though there have been plenty of promising developments in a vaccine to fight the novel virus, one Florida politician has been forced to apologize after claiming that the cure for Coronavirus is in the power of a household blow dryer.
"One the things pointed out by one of the foremost doctors that has studied the Coronavirus says that the nasal passages and the nasal membranes are the coolest part of the body. That's why the virus tends to go there" he explained, citing his background as a paramedic as his merit for medical and health expertise. "The answer was you use a blow dryer. You hold a blow dryer up to your face and you inhale with your nose and it kills all the viruses in your nose."
He has since apologized for his comments and pledged that he wouldn't make any more comments or suggestions surrounding his debunked claims.
To All.my Facebook Friends, I am Heartfully Sorry for comments I made on Social Media. I was only trying to give comfort to those in Okeechobee who have no insurance to treat there families
I should have ignored the comments that I perceived as hateful and the embarrassment I caused to my Fellow Commissioners and our Administrator
And her staff
I will not offer anymore suggestions unless they are tried and proven
I ask for All of your forgiveness for anything offensive that I uttered during these exchanges. God Bless and soften your hearts.
