"The New York Attorney General Leticia James on Thursday ordered Alex Jones to cease and desist selling and marketing products as treatments for the coronavirus.
The notice to Jones came after the conspiracist and pitch man sold his products as effective against the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, that is now considered a pandemic.
“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 said in a statement.
“Mr. Jones’ public platform has not only given him a microphone to shout inflammatory rhetoric, but his latest mistruths are incredibly dangerous and pose a serious threat to the public health of New Yorkers and individuals across the nation.”
James said she could take legal action against Jones if he didn’t stop the “unlawful violations.”
“Within the next ten business days, please contact the undersigned to confirm that you have so complied,” wrote Lisa Landau, chief of the attorney general’s office’s health care bureau, in a letter to Jones. “Your failure to comply with this directive may result in further action by this office.”
