Term Fraudulent COVID-19 Test/Vaccine/Treatment Reporting
Code FN-1700.1470-215
Definition Programs that provide a hotline or other mechanisms that people can use to report scammers offering products that claim to help diagnose, treat, cure and even prevent COVID-19. Because COVID-19 has never been seen in humans before, there are currently no vaccines to prevent or drugs to treat COVID-19 that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is working with vaccine and drug manufacturers to develop new vaccines for and find drugs to treat COVID-19 as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, some individuals and companies are trying to profit from the pandemic by selling unproven and illegally marketed products that make false claims, such as being effective against the coronavirus, endangering the individuals who make a purchase and members of their family.
