    Vietnamese printer arrested for peddling fake Coronavirus test certificates - Times of India
    HANOI: Police in northern Vietnam have arrested a businessman who made and sold hundreds of fake Covid-19 test certificates as the Southeast Asian country battles its worst epidemic to date.
    A new wave of infections since late April has forced the country to impose travel restrictions on a third of its cities and provinces, many of which require people to have negative certificates to travel.
    Tran Tuan Dong, who runs a printing business in Ba Ning province, was arrested Wednesday while selling six certificates to a customer for 1 million dong ($ 43.86), the provincial police said.
    Duong, 34, confessed to police that he had sold about 150 such documents, including those for pen-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, according to a police statement on Thursday, which said further investigations were under way.
    Vietnam has recorded more than 241,000 coronavirus infections and at least 4,487 deaths in total, with the vast majority in recent months following a year of successful curtailment. ($ 1 = 22,800 dong)
