The minister for the Road Transport and Bridges Ministry made the observation in a press briefing at his official residence on Tuesday morning. 

“Exemplary punishment is needed for the people involved in issuing fake Covid-19 test results,” said the ruling party’s general secretary, adding that surveillance needs to be increased to prevent crimes like this. 

Quader also urged for an increase in testing to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

Quader’s comments came after the fake Covid-19 scams of multiple organizations came to light recently.

On Sunday, police arrested Dr Sabrina, the JKG Health Care chairman, for her suspected involvement in a recently exposed Covid-19 test scam in Dhaka.
