China’s state prosecutor has ordered a nationwide crackdown on profiteering and fake vaccines amid a mounting wave of fake COVID-19 vaccine cases, state media reported.

“The Supreme People’s Procuratorate has ordered state prosecutors at all levels of government to “act quickly and resolutely crack down on coronavirus vaccine crimes,” state news agency Xinhua reported.

So far, the authorities have arrested 70 suspects in 21 cases linked to coronavirus vaccine fakes and racketeering, it said.

In some cases, fake vaccines had been made using saline to attract government subsidies for clinics offering emergency vaccinations to members of the public, it said.

It said one suspect surnamed Qiao had recruited friends and relatives from his hometown to manufacture the fakes in hotel rooms and rented apartments, to fill vials copied exactly from the design of genuine vaccine vials.
