Docsun Computation Medlab is at the forefront of ensuring access to credible and verifiable information in regards to the COVID -19 Pandemic. Listed below are some tips to identify false and misleading claims by FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
While we remain vigilant to protect our families and communities from COVID-19, some people might be tempted to buy or use questionable products that claim to help diagnose, treat, cure, and even prevent coronavirus disease.
Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect everyone 12 and older from COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Comirnaty for the prevention of COVID-19 in people ages 16 and older. The vaccine has the same formulation as the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine that continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for people ages 12 to 15. The FDA has also authorized other COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use in people 18 and older.
The FDA continues to work with vaccine and drug manufacturers, developers, and researchers to help facilitate the development and availability of medical products – such as additional vaccines, antibodies, and medicines – to prevent or treat COVID-19.
Unlike the products approved or authorized by the FDA, fraudulent products that claim to cure, treat, or prevent COVID-19 haven’t been evaluated by the agency for safety and effectiveness and might be dangerous to you and your family.
The FDA is particularly concerned that these deceptive and misleading products might cause people to delay or stop appropriate medical treatment for COVID-19, leading to serious and life-threatening harm. It’s likely that the products do not do what they claim, and the ingredients in them could cause adverse effects and could interact and potentially interfere with medications to treat many underlying medical conditions.
Docsun on How to Protect Yourself and Your Family from Coronavirus Fraud
The FDA advises consumers to be cautious of websites and stores selling products that claim to prevent, treat, or cure COVID-19.
Here are some tips to identify false or misleading claims.
- Be suspicious of products that claim to treat a wide range of diseases.
- Personal testimonials are no substitute for scientific evidence.
- Few diseases or conditions can be treated quickly, so be suspicious of any therapy claimed as a “quick fix.”
- If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
- “Miracle cures,” which claim scientific breakthroughs or contain secret ingredients, are likely a hoax.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines, and speak to your medical provider. Your health care provider will advise you about whether you should get tested and the process for being tested in your area.
The sale of fraudulent COVID-19 products is a threat to the public health. The best way to prevent COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. If you are concerned about COVID-19, talk to your health care provider.
