Came across an interesting piece of news:

China has admitted that its pharmaceutical companies were involved in shipping fake drugs labeled ‘Made In India’ to Nigeria.

“The Chinese authorities have accepted this position (that its firms were involved in the case),” an official said.

“The Indian government took up the matter with the Nigerian authorities and on further probe, it was found that the drugs had actually originated in China and not in India,” he added[China admits its companies’ involvement in fake drugs case].

Shows the success of Indian pharma companies as well as the extremes companies go to sell stuff – Happy and scary at the same time.
