Figures in China report almost 200,000 persons are said to have died in 2001 as a consequence of having taken counterfeit drugs.[1]

The online pharmacy in China began in 2005. By the end of 2008, only 10 online pharmacy obtained permission to sell the OTC drugs,[2] versus 639 in January, 2017.[3] Not only the number, but also the sales are booming. Thus, the China Food and Drug Administration conducted a pilot reform to admit three businesses using their third-party platform to retail drugs online with the B2C mode since 2013, which has been ended by August, 2016 accounting for to some extent difficulty in its regulation.[4]
