The Melaka state health department (JKN) will be lodging a police report against a private clinic for faking a COVID-19 antigen rapid test kit (RTK) results.

As reported by Astro AWANI,  Melaka health and anti-drug executive councillor (exco) Dr Muhammad Akmal Saleh said initial investigation found that at least 6 patients’ positive test results were altered to negative by a doctor for a fee.

He said the crime only came to light after a COVID-19 patient who was seeking treatment at Melaka Hospital admitted that his earliest test at a private clinic in Ayer Keroh came out positive. However, the factory worker paid the doctor to change his result to negative as he didn’t want to be quarantined.

Muhammad Akmal further explained that the patient is now in an induced coma in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) due to receiving late treatment.

Melaka JKN said stated that they are currently gathering further evidence of forged test results before making a police report against the clinic in question.

“Melaka JKN will not be tolerant and will be firm in this matter. This involves not only the safety of the patient but also the safety of the surrounding community,” Muhammad Akmal said.

He added that JKN will not compromise with any individual or private clinic that would commit such misconduct.

“We are collecting evidence and will hand them over to the police in the near future to take action under Act 342 (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988).”
