The Department of Health has issued an emergency warning to regional health bureaus across the nation, asking them to be on the lookout for counterfeit drugs that are believed to have made it onto the market from a Chiayi County drug counterfeiting operation.
A operation by the National Police Agency (NPA) on Saturday uncovered a counterfeit drug ring based in the county's Taibao Township.
Counterfeit versions of many popular drugs were found, including Losec, Panadol and the "morning after" medication Norlevo.
