HABA!!! FG seals Abuja laboratory for issuing fake COVID-19 results

The Federal Government has sealed an Abuja-based laboratory for issuing fake COVID-19 results to international travellers.

The Director-General of Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu, disclosed this on Monday at the weekly press briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

He said the development followed an investigation conducted by the government after a media report last year revealed underhand dealings of some laboratories issuing fake results.
 
Recall that an online newspaper, The Cable, had in an undercover story in December 2020 reported that for N25,000, travellers were getting fake COVID-19 test results.

Ihekweazu said based on that report, an investigation was conducted and the affected laboratory was sealed with the assistance of the Federal Capital Territory Authority.

  2. Why is the name of the laboratory and it's address being shielded?

    A place like that can issue fake HIV result, fake DNA result and even an improperly tested malaria result.

    Do you realise the implications to public health and safety to allow such individuals amd organisations to be protected in a pandemic?
