Geneva. The World Health Organization (WHO) has received a fake corona vaccine from CoveShield in India and Uganda. This fake vaccine was also given to the patients by taking them out of the Authorized Vaccine Center. WHO has issued a warning about medical products after getting a fake Coveshield. Here, Serum Institute of India (SII), the company that makes CoveShield, has said that it does not supply CoveShield in 5 and 2 ml vials. WHO said, ‘SII has confirmed that the vaccine listed in the list is fake. WHO got information about these only from the level of patients in India and Uganda. They were found to be fake due to the frequent missing of the necessary information written on the vaccine.
The WHO said that the fake corona vaccine should be identified and destroyed immediately. Fake vaccines are a major threat to the health of people around the world. This will increase the extra load on the people coming to the risk zone and health facilities.

The vial of fake Covishield found in Uganda was 5 ml, in which it was said to apply 10 doses. Batch number 4121Z040 and fake expiry date 10 August was written on it.
