The Medical Product Alert warns consumers, healthcare professionals, and health authorities against a growing number of falsified medical products that claim to prevent, detect, treat or cure COVID - 19.

The COVID - 19 pandemic has increased demand for medicines, vaccines, diagnostics and reagents, all related to COVID - 19, creating an opportunity for ill-intended persons to distribute falsified medical products.

Due diligence is required from all actors in the procurement, use and administration of medical products, in particular those affected by the current crisis of, or related to, COVID - 19.

The WHO states, at this stage, the World Health Organization does not recommend any medicines to treat or cure COVID - 19.

However, the SOLIDARITY trial, led by WHO is reviewing potential treatments for COVID - 19.
