Two employees at a Covid-19 screening centre in the UAE have been arrested for forging several test results, authorities have said. 

Investigations confirmed that the duo used their jobs to falsify test results for a fee, the official spokesperson for the Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Prosecution has said in a statement issued to the state news agency, Wam. 

The staff members were found to have been altering images of the negative test results of other people. Then, the people who paid them used these fake results to enter Abu Dhabi.
