Health Editor’s Note: As is always the case, where there is a need for something there will be those who take advantage of that and scam/lie/cheat to make money.  Be aware that no COVID-19 vaccines will be sold on the Internet or through other informal channels. Since day one of this pandemic, we have seen people scamming masks and tests. Now they are going for the actual vaccine/vaccination level. Despicable…..Carol  

‘Tip Of the Iceberg’: Interpol Says Fake COVID-19 Vaccines Were Smuggled Across Continents

by Simon Shuster/Time

By the time police discovered the shipment of fake COVID-19 vaccines, the vials had travelled over 6,000 miles from China to South Africa, the work of a smuggling ring that has produced thousands of counterfeit doses, according to Interpol, the global police agency that helped break up the operation.

The trafficking case, involving a shipment of at least 2,400 doses, is the first confirmed instance of fake vaccines being smuggled across continents, an Interpol spokesperson told TIME—though there are likely more that have occurred, and more still that may be uncovered in the future. “This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to COVID-19 vaccine related crime,” said Jürgen Stock, the agency’s secretary general, in a statement on March 3.

Interpol first issued a warning about such the potential for such crimes in early December, alerting law enforcement agents in its 194 member countries that criminal networks were trying to “infiltrate and disrupt supply chains” involved in the global rollout of vaccines to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

  1. Tip of the iceberg. So, does that mean we are all passengers on the Titanic riding through dangerous vaccine waters? Should we be asking for a warranty when we get jabbed……just in case? When I got a positive test for the virus, I was not informed what strain I had. Was this part of the test? Who knows. It might matter in the future to know this if more vaccines come on the market.
