Dr. Joseph Fair appeared on NBC and the Today Show nearly a dozen times in May during the height of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.

In one segment Dr. Joseph Fair told the Today hosts, “If it can take me down, it can take anybody.”
But it was all a lie.
Dr. Joseph Fair did not have coronavirus.
