Covid vaccines are making headlines these days, and this is especially due to massive controversies that are floating around them.

Also, coronavirus vaccines passports have been in the talk these days, and it’s just been revealed that Covid-19 vaccines, vaccine passports and faked negative test papers are being sold on the darknet.

BBC notes that “Prices range between $500 (£360) and $750 for doses of AstraZeneca, Sputnik, Sinopharm or Johnson & Johnson jabs. Fake vaccination certificates are also being sold by anonymous traders for as little as $150.”

BBC also reported that researchers say they have seen a “sharp increase” in vaccine-related darknet adverts, while the BBC has been unable to verify if the vaccines are real.

Just in case you don’t know, the darknet, also known as the dark web, is a portion of the internet that is only accessible through specific browser tools.

The same website notes: “Researchers at cyber-security company Check Point had monitored hacking forums and other marketplaces since January when vaccine adverts first appeared.”

It’s also important to note that they say the “number of adverts they have seen has tripled to more than 1,200. Sellers of vaccines appear to be from the US, UK, Spain, Germany, France and Russia.”

Coronavirus in the news

More European nations and one in Asia suspended the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine. You are probably aware that this has been happening due to safety fears following some pretty severe health issues and even deaths after the vaccine. WHO recently responded. 

Also, make sure to check out the news that Dr Anthony Fauci dropped the other day about the pandemic. 

Now, some pretty interesting news about the Moderna vaccine is popping up.
