Default We've got a sure cure...

First, we have the renouned "Church of Bleach" (Genesis II Church of Health and Healing) promoting its panacea through useful fools:

QAnon-ers' Magic Cure for Coronavirus: Just Drink Bleach!

And then, not one, but two of my favorite flim-flam men!

New York attorney general tells Alex Jones to stop selling bogus coronavirus cures
Quote:
New York Attorney General Letitia James has sent a cease and desist letter to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for allegedly selling bogus coronavirus killing toothpaste.

"As the coronavirus continues to pose serious risks to public health, Alex Jones has spewed outright lies and has profited off of New Yorkers' anxieties," James alleged in a statement the same day her office sent the letter.

James' office sent similar letters to televangelist Jim Bakker and Dr. Sherrill Sellman after Sellman said on an interview on Bakker's show Feb. 12 that "Silver Solution" can cure certain strains of the virus.
Good ol' Jim Bakker rates a second mention.

Missouri Sues Televangelist Jim Bakker For Selling Fake Coronavirus Cure
Quote:
Missouri is the first state to file a lawsuit against Bakker for selling his coronavirus "treatment," but others have also been warning him to stop peddling his snake oil. On March 3, the New York Attorney General's Office sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bakker, accusing him of defrauding the public.

"Your show's segment may mislead consumers as to the effectiveness of the Silver Solution product in protecting against the current outbreak," wrote Lisa Landau, chief of the New York Attorney General's Office's health care bureau. The World Health Organization "has noted that there is no specific medicine to prevent or treat this disease," the letter said. It gave Bakker 10 business days to comply or face legal action.
