The International Criminal Police Organization, Interpol and United States’ Homeland Security Investigators (HIS) has raised alarm over the online sale of fake Covid-19 vaccines. This was announced in a statement on the official website of the security outfit. “With criminal groups producing, distributing and selling fake vaccines, the risks to the public are clear: these can include buying a product which not only does not protect against COVID-19, but poses a serious health hazard if ingested or injected. Such products are not tested, regulated or safety-checked”, the statement read in part. “Legitimate vaccines are not for sale. They are strictly administered and distributed by national healthcare regulators. “Anyone buying these products online also runs the risk of potentially giving their money to organized criminals”, the agency added.
