The Coronavirus problem really is getting majorly serious now, with millions of people all over the world quarantined and supplies of hand sanitiser running low everywhere and now one prick out there is trying to capitalise on it all by selling a cure for the disease – but thankfully authorities have seen through his deception and ordered him to stop.

Jim Bakker is a TV preacher who stars in his own TV show ‘The Jim Bakker Show’ ranting and raving about the Lord and convincing anyone who will tune in that they need to buy whatever religious paraphernalia he’s buying mightily quickly and for overinflated prices. It seems obvious that he was going to cash in on the Coronavirus craze and this is exactly what he has done, selling the ‘Silver Solution’ – which he stated could eliminate other strains of Coronavirus in 12 hours, but crucially not Covid-19 – in a deal where you get 16 bottles of it for $300. Sounds fair, right?
Sadly for Bakker though, his idea was shut down by the New York Attorney General Letitia James, who sent him a cease and desist letter saying the following:
Let’s say it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the coronavirus, but it’s been tested on other strains of the coronavirus and it has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours.
Your show’s segment may mislead consumers as to the effectiveness of the Silver Solution product in protecting against the current outbreak.
Any representation on the Jim Bakker Show that its Silver Solution products are effective at combating and/or treating the 2019 novel coronavirus violates New York law.
Sadly though, despite the fact that this letter has been issued the Silver Solution still remains available for sale on Bakker’s website. Good job guys – maybe we should invest in some whilst it’s still available?
Anyway, as the Coronavirus pandemic continues to grow, you’re probably going to see more of this crap for sale on the internet. I shouldn’t have to tell you this, but don’t be fooled by it and save your money for the last remaining rolls of toilet paper or something.
