Report: Russia quickly becoming a major source of online fake pharma

A report by Deutsche Welle says roughly half of the prescription drugs sold online are fake, and Russia is quickly becoming a major source of bogus medications. The publication cited "random" surveys that indicated that as much as 27% of the drugs on Russian pharmacy shelves are fakes. With the growth of online pharmacies, it's expected that the percentage of counterfeit pharmaceuticals will likely increase, Deutsche Welle said, reporting that the World Health Organization estimates that as much as 50% of drugs available online are fakes.
