What is chlorine?
Health workers should be aware of rumors that drinking chlorine or disinfectant solutions could cure or prevent Ebola virus disease (Ebola). Chlorine is NOT a cure for Ebola. No one should ever drink chlorine or disinfectant solutions containing chlorine.
When chlorine, sometimes called bleach, is swallowed it can make people very sick or be fatal. How sick they get depends on the amount of chlorine in the product swallowed and the amount they drink. Be aware of the signs and symptoms of drinking chlorine.
