There’s No COVID-19 Cure Online: $14 Million Seized In Fake Pharma As 121 Arrested.
From counterfeit surgical masks to coronavirus ‘cures’ – criminal lowlife exploiting the pandemic are targeted by global law enforcement operation
Catherine De Bolle, the executive director of Europol, has warned the public not to buy medicines online which claim to cure COVID-19. “Not only are these medicines fake,” De Bolle said in a Twitter posting, “but dangerous too.”
The warning comes as Europol announced the success of Operation Pangea, a global law enforcement operation involving a total of 90 countries that was coordinated by INTERPOL. “Operation Pangea shows that criminals will stop at nothing to make a profit,” INTERPOL secretary general, Jürgen Stock, said.
