A nurse who pretending to vaccinate against covid19 in exchange for 400 euros has been arrested in Palermo, Sicily, according to Italian police. With this practice, the nurse allowed several antivaccine patients to receive the covid certificate without having received the dose.
Nurse arrested for pretending to vaccinate against covid for $400
According to the images of a security camera, placed in the health center where she worked, the modus operandi of the nurse was as follows: first she loaded the syringe with the corresponding dose of the vaccine against the coronavirus.
Then, she emptied the entire contents into a gauze that she carried in her other hand, and finally injected the needle into the patient’s arm, but now completely empty.
400 euros for a needle stick without vaccine
After this pantomime, the patient received the covid certificate without having been vaccinated.
The vaccination passport is required in Italy to gain access to different areas or to carry out different activities. Among them, going to the workplace.
The investigation, which was carried out by the investigation and special operations unit of the Palermo police, ended with the arrest of the nurse and of two leaders of an anti-vaccine group, Filippo Accetta and Giuseppe Tomasino, who were involved in the corruption and forgery scheme and who were recorded receiving the fake jab by the nurse.
Among the patients recorded receiving the fake jab and, therefore, also accused of forgery, are a policeman from a local police station and a nurse from the same health center, a colleague of the arrested nurse. All of them are being prosecuted, their vaccination certificates have been blocked and, in the case of the nurse and the policeman, they have been suspended from their jobs.
