Ireland : Health Minister warns against using unlicensed prescription medicines for treating COVID-19

Unlicensed drugs have been illegally imported into Northern Ireland claiming to be for the treatment of COVID-19, Health Minister Robin Swann has said. Some of these so-called medicines could potentially do more harm than the virus.
The minister said: “I urge the public not to be fooled by online offers for medical products. […] Be in no doubt, medicines sourced in this way present a real danger to those taking them. […] This problem is not something we can tackle in isolation and my department will continue to work with other agencies to disrupt the supply of illegal medicines.”
