The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) in a release dated June 9, 2020 says it has received a notification from the National Security Council Secretariat concerning a fake potentially dangerous vaccine which claims to prevent COVID-19 infection.

According to the release the vaccine which is contained in a small sealed vial bearing the logo of the manufacturer and a set of counterfeit instructions in the Hebrew language was manufactured by the Galilee Research Institute (MIGAL) in Israel and is being sold currently in several South American countries including Ecuador.

Chief Executive Officer of the FDA Mrs Delese A.A. Darko, stated that the World Health Organisation as well as the Israeli and South American Authorities are aware of the situation and investigations are ongoing by MIGAL to determine the source of the vaccine.

The FDA confirmed that its officers in all the regions are working to ensure that these products do not get into the country’s supply chain and warned that all medicines are to be imported through Tema Habour and Kotoka International Airport after registration.

The release said that the general public should contact the Head of Communication and Public Education of the FDA on 0244337235 for any clarification or suggestion.
