About six tons of adulterated drugs, expired and smuggled were seized so far this year in different raids in Lambayeque. Oscar Reluz Salazar, Executive Director of Medicines, Supplies and Drugs (DIREMID), said that they intensified operations and interventions in this period against clandestine pharmacies, drugstores located on the outskirts of the city and some districts where drugs are sold without prescription. He added that during these operations, antibiotics, antipyretics and antispasmodics were seized. He said that so far this year, 12 pharmacies have been closed temporarily for health safety measures for less than 30 days.
