New York Attorney General Letitia James ordered Wayne Allyn Root to immediately cease and desist marketing products as treatments or cures for coronavirus. Wayne Allyn Root — through his television show on Newsmax and his social media accounts — has been marketing products as treatments and preventative measures for coronavirus. Root has made misleading claims that products from and advertised on his show will help cure coronavirus and “might save your life” if you contract coronavirus. There is currently no Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved vaccine to prevent the disease or treatment to cure it and the World Health Organization has also said that there is no specific medicine to prevent or treat this disease.
