PUTRAJAYA- Several police reports were lodged today regarding the online sale of the Covid-19 vaccines, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Zainuddin Yaacob said.
He said the sale is a scam and the case is being investigated under Section 420 of the Penal Code.
“Police have noticed the advertisement that went viral on social media regarding the sale of the Covid-19 vaccine online and the business operator has issued a statement to deny it.
“The public is also advised to always follow announcements and instructions issued by the government from time to time in ensuring accurate information is obtained related to this vaccination programme,” Zainuddin was quoted by Bernama as saying.
The government already announced that the Covid-19 vaccines will be provided for free to all. Any offer to sell the vaccines by any party is an irresponsible act and possibly a scam.
