Corona Quacks: Exposing fake coronavirus cures in Ghana – BBC Africa Eye documentary



An underworld of quack doctors and conmen have been exploiting the coronavirus pandemic and making money selling fake coronavirus cures. Investigative reporter Anas Aremeyaw Anas goes undercover in Ghana, exposing a Covid-19 scam said to be worth tens of thousands of dollars.

The World Health Organisation estimates 100,000 people die as a consequence of fake clinical and herbal medicines every year in Africa. Posing as the brother of a man infected with the deadly coronavirus, Anas sets out to find so-called cures, to expose the men who sell them, and to test the liquids for potentially dangerous and toxic ingredients.
