An Australian church is being taken to court for promoting bleach as a cure for Covid 19.

The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing has already been fined for advertising a solution that contains industrial bleach.

Australia correspondent Donna Demaio told Kate Hawkesby there are serious health risks if people take it, including nausea and vomiting.

The country's drug regulator - the Therapeutic Goods Administration - has already fined the church and given it two days to take down the advertising.

But correspondent Donna Demaio says it refused, prompting the regulator to seek an injunction to force it to stop.
