The Kuwaiti Ministry of Health’s (MoH) Assistant Undersecretary for Public Health, Dr. Majda Al Qattan, said on Friday that a group of people were arrested for tampering with expat blood tests at the foreign labor test center.

Earlier, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Interior (MoI) had urgently ordered for blood tests on four Egyptian nationals for Hepatitis, Tuberculosis and Aids. The results showed that two individuals suffered from Hepatitis B and two others from Hepatitis C.

The employees in question have been reportedly altering blood test results by tampering with the samples when they were transported from the draw-room to the laboratory, said Qattan. The MoH will coordinate with the Foreign Ministry to prevent such forgery in the future, said the Undersecretary.
