Australian church fined for selling bleach as coronavirus cure

A church in Australia has been fined for unlawfully advertising a purported “miracle” coronavirus cure that contains a bleach product, the Therapeutic Goods Administration said Wednesday.

The medical regulator said MMS Australia had received 12 fines totalling Aus$151,200 (US$98,000) for promoting its “Miracle Mineral Solution”, which the TGA said contained a high concentration of sodium chlorite — a chemical used as a textile bleaching agent and disinfectant.

MMS Australia is a chapter of the US-based Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, which is subject to a US Justice Department injunction preventing it from selling or distributing its own version of MMS containing the bleach product chlorine dioxide.

A website purportedly linked to the Genesis II Church has listed testimonials claiming — without evidence — that MMS can cure everything from Alzheimer’s to malaria.

Australia’s TGA said it had fined the church because it was “concerned about the harmful effects that can be caused by the ingestion of MMS”.
