The Ministry of Health has confirmed that the disturbing videos of capsules with nails being distributed at the CWM Hospital is fake.

They say the video is being circulated on social media, in particular Facebook.

The video was originally circulated with the intent to undermine a manufacturing company in India and is now being circulated to suggest that the medicines shown were obtained from a Fiji Health Facility.

The Ministry urges members of the public not to share or post such fake news as it will create fear.

They have assured the public that medicines imported into Fiji must meet certain quality standards and a thorough product approval system is in place to ensure only quality, safe and effective medicines enter our shores.
