Illegal pharmaceuticals - two people died after receiving fake medicine
Over the weekend the Ministry of Public Health continued its latest operation by closing down four more pharmacies that were distributing illegal pharmaceuticals. Now more than 50 pharmacies have been charged with selling fake medications. This is part of an ongoing initiative by the Ministry to close businesses that are selling illegal medications. The push by the Ministry comes weeks after two people died after receiving fake tetanus shots. However, small pharmacies keep operating and tourists should be very careful ONLY to buy medicine from larger recognized and doctor recommended pharmacies.



Dominican Watchdog warns that tourists should be very careful when buying medicine in the Dominican Republic.
