After seven months of investigation, Chinese authorities have arrested 160 members of a criminal gang in Shanghai for luring patients with overpriced drugs (10 times the original value). More than 500 victims were cheated through corrupt doctors for an amount reaching about CNY1.7.
On the other hand, 20 people have been arrested for selling more than 1.6 million fake Durex condoms and 19 detentions about counterfeit medical device in Henan province.
This large wave of ‘crack-downs’ is definitely highlighting the will of Xi Jinping’s government to drastly corruption and lures.
