Cameroun : Further smuggled fake medicines hauls

Thousands of fake tablets have been smuggled into Cameroon from neighboring Nigeria. The suspects caught with the fake medicines have been remanded in custody. Officials said Cameroon has seen a rise in the production and proliferation of fake chloroquine as people rush to obtain the anti-malaria drug in the unproven belief it can prevent the infection of COVID-19. Last week, police seized 41 cartons of fake paracetamol in Douala. In April, six pharmaceutical companies that were producing and selling fake medicines were shut down.
