The Interpol on Wednesday warned countries across the world of organised crimes against the upcoming COVID-19 vaccines.
Lyon: The Interpol on Wednesday issued an alert for its 194 member countries, warning them to prepare for organised crimes against COVID-19 vaccines. The Interpol stressed on the importance of preparation as it issued an Orange Notice for the countries.
The notice alerted the countries about organised networks that intend to target COVID-19 vaccines physically and through the internet. The crimes that the Interpol warned about include theft, falsification, illegal advertising and distribution of coronavirus vaccines.
Distribution channels could be infiltrated
The Interpol said that as the COVID-19 vaccines near delivery, they might fall prey to criminal networks. The Interpol raised concerns that distribution channels could be infiltrated and storage capacities could be compromised, making it crucial for the countries to stay vigilant.
Jürgen Stock, INTERPOL Secretary-General said, "It is essential that law enforcement is as prepared as possible for what will be an onslaught of all types of criminal activity linked to the COVID-19 vaccine, which is why INTERPOL has issued this global warning."
In November this year, the Interpol released a set of updated guidelines to ensure proper law enforcement around the world amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
