From a single case of issued fake certificates in the town of Kozani, the police investigation has already covered the entire country. The health documents of medical staff in state hospitals in Thessaloniki, Kavala, Santorini, Drama and several other districts are in doubt.
In order to stay at work, some of them have submitted vaccination certificates from Bulgaria.
A journalistic investigation by Open TV reported that some of the medics under investigation were at work on the dates for setting the doses in Bulgaria. Others presented a document for the presence of antibodies after coronavirus disease, without going to the hospital at that time.
In the city of Thebes, negative tests for coronavirus were issued without the individuals being tested in the hospital’s laboratory. Elsewhere, more people have been immunized than the vaccine available for the day.
