A federal court has ordered the "Genesis II Church of Health and Healing" to stop distributing a bleach product that Genesis claims is a cure for COVID-19 and many other health problems.

The US government sued Genesis on Thursday, alleging that it violated the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act with labeling for its so-called Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), also known as Master Mineral Solution. Genesis' website "contains claims that MMS is intended to cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent coronavirus, which includes COVID-19, and links to testimonials claiming that MMS cures a litany of other diseases including, among others, Alzheimer's, autism, brain cancer, HIV/AIDS, and multiple sclerosis," the lawsuit said. Despite its name, the "church" is a "secular entity based in the State of Florida," the government lawsuit said.

"In the midst of a viral pandemic and national emergency like nothing seen for more than a century, the above-captioned defendants are exploiting the crisis by marketing a powerful industrial bleach to consumers as a remedy for coronavirus," the government also said in its lawsuit.
