International Criminal Police Organization-Interpol has issued a global alert over fake coronavirus vaccines.
The organization warned on Wednesday that organized criminal gang may release fake coronavirus vaccines in the market for profit.
The global police coordination agency said it had issued an alert to police forces of its 194 member states, warning them to prepare for vaccines to be targeted both physically and online.
The Interpol secretary general Jürgen Stock said, “When governments are preparing to roll out mass vaccination programmes, organized criminal gangs are planning to infiltrate or disrupt supply chains. They also can target people via fake websites and false cures that could pose a significant risk to their health, even their lives.”
