Vietnamese pretended to be a doctor and discharged patients with COVID-19 from hospital

(ORDO NEWS) — One of the patients, who was in the quarantine center, sent a list of those people who could already allegedly be discharged home from the hospital. Now a man will have to pay a fairly large fine for his rash act. Reported by Tuoi Tre News.

This incident took place in the southern part of Vietnam, in Binh Duong province. One of the local residents, sick with coronavirus, was being treated at the hospital. He pretended to be a doctor and thus discharged several other patients who were in the hospital at that time and were also infected with COVID-19.

The man was prosecuted and ordered to pay a 7.5 million dong fine, which is approximately $ 330.

Reporters told that the man created a separate account in the Zalo application, which he called “Dr. Long”. Then he compiled a list of patients and sent it to the chat group.

He indicated that these people can be discharged and even noted the exact date. After that, another message was sent, saying that everyone should pack their things and the next day at 8:30 in the morning they gather downstairs.

The management of the quarantine center immediately after learning about the incident reported to the police. Law enforcement officials immediately began an investigation, during which the man confessed to what was done and promised not to do anything like that again. But, despite all the promises, he will still have to pay the fine.
