We are aware of a small number of advertisers who are seeking to use the COVID-19 pandemic to their own benefit. There is currently no known cure for COVID-19, or vaccine to prevent the coronavirus from spreading, and many so-called preventative products, like face masks, have not been shown to offer the level of protection they claim to give.

In order to be able to rapidly respond to the challenge presented by these ads, we are accepting quick reports about ads, using the form below.

This form is only for ads related to coronavirus/COVID-19. If you would like to submit a complaint about an ad on any other topic, please use our make a complaint page.

Please note that due to the urgency of the situation, we will not be giving personal responses to people who report potentially misleading or irresponsible ads to us using this reporting form. This is to enable us to work quickly and efficiently to contact businesses and remove as quickly as possible ads that we find break the ad rules.


By submitting this report to us, you confirm that you understand and acknowledge that you are submitting a 'report', and you are not submitting a full and formal complaint. As such you  understand you will not receive a personal response from the ASA.
