Vials of a fake and potentially dangerous liquid with the logo of an Israeli research institute are being sold as a coronavirus vaccine in South America, Channel 12 News reported Wednesday.

The glass vials look like medicine ampules and have the logo of the Migal Institute in northern Israel, which last month reported progress on a new vaccine but is only starting human trials this summer.

The report said the phony vaccines are being sold in several countries, including Ecuador, where a single dose is selling for up to $380.

Migal’s director, David Zigdon, thanked Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which conducted an in-depth investigation into the affair and alerted the World Health Organization and the foreign ministries of relevant South American nations about the fake vaccines.

Migal has been working on a new oral coronavirus vaccine for the past four years and developed a vaccine for coronavirus in poultry that it is now adapting for humans. However, the vaccine is nowhere near ready because the human trials have not even started yet.

Several Israeli researchers have reported progress on developing treatments for the coronavirus, but experts caution not to expect anything soon, even though the World Health Organization reported last week that eight candidate vaccines are already in clinical evaluation and 100 other vaccines are in pre-clinical testing.

One scientist at the Israel Institute for Biological Research said the monoclonal antibody they isolated is a positive discovery and a great success for the lab, but they still have big question marks about whether or not a drug made from the antibodies will work on humans.



据《 12频道新闻》周三报道,在南美,一种带有以色列研究机构徽标的假冒且可能具有危险性的药瓶正在作为冠状病毒疫苗出售。

这些玻璃小瓶看起来像药品安瓿,并带有以色列北部米加尔研究所(Migal Institute)的徽标,该研究所上个月报告了一种新疫苗的进展,但仅在今年夏天才开始进行人体试验。


米加尔的主任戴维·齐登(David Zigdon)对以色列外交部表示感谢,以色列外交部对该事件进行了深入调查,并向世界卫生组织和南美相关国家的外交部通报了假疫苗。


几位以色列研究人员报告了在开发冠状病毒治疗方面取得的进展,但是专家警告不要期望很快,尽管世界卫生组织上周报告说,已经有8种候选疫苗已经在临床评估中,另有100种正在临床前测试中。 。
