The same official assures that he has never observed a dynamic such as the one we are currently seeing in the world of organized crime and which targets vaccine stocks. He thus warns both against terrorist organizations and against organized crime networks on an international scale, which could organize attacks against warehouses where vaccines are stored.

These attacks, he believes, could intensify as states receive deliveries of vaccines ordered from manufacturing laboratories. Criminal networks could also infiltrate the vaccine supply chain by offering counterfeit products to states in distress and even to individuals who wish to obtain their injection on their own. “As governments prepare to distribute vaccines, criminal organizations plan to infiltrate or disrupt supply chains,” said Jürgen Stock in an interview with an American chain.

Interpol, the daily recalls, had already published an orange-level global alert addressed to the law enforcement services of its 194 member countries, urging them to prepare for the offensive of organized crime networks that risk s ‘attack vaccines against Covid-19, both physically and on the Internet.
