Ministry Of Health Suspends Hospital For Issuing Fake COVID-19 Testing Results

Ministry Of Health Suspends Hospital For Issuing Fake COVID-19 Testing Results

The Ministry of Health has suspended SELMEK Medical Services from conducting COVID-19 testing at their facility over issuing fake Covid-19 results.

Dr. Henry G Mwebesa, the Ministry of Health Director-General Services in a letter directed to the SELMEK Medical Services Executive Director dated 21st July 2021 directed the facility to stop carrying out any tests with immediate effect.

According to Dr. Mwebesa, the Ministry of health through reports from Entebbe international airport and other laboratory results has observed a high rate of fraudulent Covid-19 results for samples associated with SELMEK Medical Services.

He stresses that SELMEK Medical Services is not officially accredited by the Ministry to offer COVID-19 testing services and sample collection.

The Ministry Director-General Services also directed all Covid-19 testing laboratories in the country to shun receiving results from this health facility.

“All Covid 19 testing laboratories are hereby instructed to stop receiving results from your facility”, the statement emphasized.

The development comes at a time when Uganda has been in the limelight all over the world for issues out fake Covid certificates to passengers which eventually turn out positive on arrival at foreign airports.
