3. Indonesia begins re-vaccinating victims of fake drug ring
Indonesia on Monday began re-vaccinating nearly 200 children who received fake versions of imported inoculations from a drug-counterfeiting ring broken up last month after operating for more than a decade.

President Joko Widodo urged calm as public uproar intensified over revelations that health officials knew about the syndicate producing the fake vaccines for several years but did little to stop it.The scandal has exposed major weaknesses in the oversight of the health sector, which has expanded rapidly alongside a growing middle class.
No illnesses or deaths have been directly linked to the fake vaccines, officials have said.
