Florida Man, His 3 Sons Who Sold Toxic Bleach As COVID-19 Miracle Cure Charged

The COVID-19 pandemic has infected more than 11 million people, claiming more than 526,000 lives across the world and people are becoming desperate in search for the miracle cure.

Earlier, the World Health Organization has acknowledged there is emerging evidence that the coronavirus can be spread by tiny particles suspended in the air, BBC reported 

Florida has witnessed a surge in coronavirus cases within the last month. More than 10,000 new infections were reported Tuesday.

Mark Grenon, 62, and sons, Jonathan, 34; Jordan, 26; and Joseph, 32, allegedly marketed and sold Miracle Mineral Solution (“MMS”) through an entirety called the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, according to the criminal complaint. As of April,  a federal judge in Miami had ordered the church to stop selling the substance, but the order was ignored, authorities said. Ariana Fajardo Orshan, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida said:

“Not only is this MMS product toxic, but its distribution and use may prevent those who are sick from receiving the legitimate healthcare they need.” “A United States District Court already has ordered the defendants to stop distributing this product; we will not sit idly by as individuals purposefully violate Court orders and put the public in danger.”

The Grenons allegedly directed their customers to ingest the MMS orally, which causes it to become chlorine dioxide, a powerful bleaching agent normally used for “industrial water treatment or bleaching textiles, pulp and paper,” according to the complaint.

Before it was marketed as a cure for COVID-19, the Grenons presented it as a remedy for autism, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Catherine Hermsen, assistant commissioner of the FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations said:

Amid surge in coronavirus in Florida, a man and his three sons are accused of selling a toxic bleachlike chemical mixture as a miracle cure for the novel coronavirus and other diseases, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

“The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing has actively and deliberately placed consumers at risk with their fraudulent Miracle Mineral Solution and Americans expect and deserve medical treatments that have been scientifically proven to be safe and effective.”

The Grenons are charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S., conspiracy to violate the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, and criminal contempt.
