New York Attorney General Letitia James is targeting Infowars founder and host Alex Jones over claims he made about nanosilver killing the sars-corona family.
James has ordered Jones “to immediately stop selling & marketing products as a treatment or cure for coronavirus on his website” and threatened legal action “if he doesn’t cease & desist these activities immediately.”
I ordered Alex Jones to immediately stop selling & marketing products as a treatment or cure for #coronavirus on his website.
If he doesn't cease & desist these activities immediately, I won't hesitate to take legal action & hold him accountable for the harm he’s caused.

James’ demands come a couple of days after several media outlets and non-profits ran headlines claiming that Jones had said a toothpaste he sells kills the coronavirus.
These headlines described a March 10 segment where Jones promoted a nanosilver toothpaste and said the patented nanosilver “kills the whole SARS-corona family.”
James has sent cease and desists to several website owners this month in relation to claims about silver and the coronavirus.
On March 3, James ordered televangelist Jim Bakker to cease and desist from making “misleading claims regarding the Silver Solution” – a product sold on his website.
And on March 11, James sent a cease and desist to natural health journalist Steve Barwick about some of the products for sale on his website The Silver Edge and ordered him to stop making “misleading claims.”
