One man in Kansas drank liquid cleaning products 'to ward off COVID-19' after news misreporting of a conversation that Pres Trump had during a press briefing. 

Kansas state health official Dr Lee Norman mentioned a case at a press briefing on Monday where he said the Kansas Poison Control Center has seen a more than 40 percent increase in cleaning chemical cases.  

Norman said that a man, who was not identified, 'drank a product because of the advice he'd received' but did not specify the source of the advice. 

'We're doing what we can to counter-message against that kind of remedy,' he said.
