Turkish police seize fake COVID-19 pills
Acting upon a clue that some fake COVID-19 drugs would be released to the market, the Istanbul Police Department carried out an operation to an address in the Maltepe district, according to the Cumhuriyet daily.
In the raid, the police seized 92,139 items of medical products, including pills used to treat COVID-19.
Authorities have reportedly found that the drugs worth 4.2 million Turkish liras (about 475,123 U.S. dollars) were manufactured in unqualified environments, endangering public health. ■
