    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The US pharmaceutical company Pfizer has identified fake doses of its vaccine against COVID-19 in Mexico and Poland, The Wall Street Journal reported.

    In Mexico, some 80 people received fraudulent vaccines at a clinic for the equivalent of $1,000 per dose. The doses also had fake labels.

    In Poland, fake doses of a COVID-19 vaccine are likely to have been an anti-wrinkle medicine. Polish authorities said that no people received the fake vaccines.

    The World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020. To date, more than 143.48 million people have been infected with the coronavirus worldwide, with over 3.05 million fatalities, according to data assembled by Johns Hopkins University.
