Islamabad, Pakistan, 09/16/2021 / Islamabad News Bureau /
Fraudulent Covid-19 vaccination certificates are being targeted by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) as a means of evading the state-run immunization program.
According to reports, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has ordered the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to take action against the persons engaged in unlawful activities.
Some staff at Karachi’s health department were found to be abusing the internet system to give certificates to unvaccinated residents, prompting the government to take action. It was also revealed that a certificate cost Rs2,000.
The government created an internet app for Covid-19 certificate verification last month. Numerous suspects have been taken into custody by the Financial Investigation Agency (FIA), according to reports.
On average, Pakistan’s daily COVID-19 positive rating has fallen to 4.78 percent in just two days. As of Wednesday morning, the National Command and Operation Centre had registered 2,714 additional cases.
