I’m seeing ads for COVID-19 treatments and cures. Are these legitimate?

At this point, there are no vaccines or cures for COVID-19 available to the public, so you know that any claim to the contrary is false. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission has sent hundreds of warning letters to companies making false cure, treatment, or prevention claims. And more letters are on the way. If you see a product claiming to treat, cure, or prevent coronavirus, report it to the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint.
