Federal Court Issues Injunction Preventing Texas Man's Sale Of Purported Coronavirus Cure

1020px-SARS-CoV-2_without_background.pngA Texas man has been enjoined by the Federal government against selling a substance he claims to be a cure for C0VD-19 despite an alleged lack of evidence that the substance works as advertised.

Investigators say the man guaranteed an undercover federal agent that the substance would work as a cure to the coronavirus just before selling it to the agent in early May. The FDA sent him a warning letter a few days later, but investigators say he sold the same substance to another undercover agent less than a week later.

According to investigators, the website through which he advertised his cure was proven to destroy coronavirus as well as offering other positive assurances of the substance's potency against the virus.

The injunction against the defendant will effectively shut down his business and website while investigators continue to build a case. The Federal government justifies the move as being done to protect the immediate health and safety of the public against possible harm by the product under investigation.

Last week's injunction was handed down by United States District Judge David Counts of the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.
