Bangladesh: Thousands of Covid-19 tests allegedly with fake results

The hospital owner Mohammad Shahed has been detained by the Bangladesian police as he tried fleeing to India over allegations that clinics in Uttara and Mirpur issued certificates for negative Covid-19 results without testing the patients.

According to police spokesman Colonel Ashique Billah that had talked to AFP Shahed's "hospitals carried out 10,500 coronavirus tests, out of which 4,200 were genuine and the rest, 6,300 test reports, were given without conducting tests". Over a dozen people have been arrested following the allegations of fake test results.
