Criminals could target Covid-19 vaccines, Interpol warns

The Interpol has warned that organised criminal networks could be targeting COVID-19 vaccines, and could look to sell fake shots.

The global police co-ordination agency, which is headquartered in France, issued a global alert to law enforcement across its 194 member countries, warning them to prepare for organised crime networks targeting COVID-19 vaccines, both physically and online, reports Reuters.

“As governments are preparing to roll out vaccines, criminal organisations are planning to infiltrate or disrupt supply chains. Criminal networks will also be targeting unsuspecting members of the public via fake websites and false cures, which could pose a significant risk to their health, even their lives,” said Interpol secretary general Juergen Stock on Wednesday.
