Cracking Down on Fraudulent Coronavirus Claims
Colloidal silver and eucalyptus radiata do not cure or prevent COVID-19
Have you recently seen family members or acquaintances share dubious claims about fighting COVID-19 with essential oils, colloidal silver or herbal tea? The FDA and FTC have seen those assertions too — and issued stern warning letters to several vendors.
The FDA declares unequivocally, “There are currently no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).”
Both the CDC and the World Health Organization agree. Nevertheless, some companies are making grandiose promises about how their products can protect against or even cure coronavirus infections.
