The Sibay Interdistrict Investigation Department initiated two criminal cases against the biologist of the clinical diagnostic laboratory and the nurse of the adult department of the Central City Hospital of Sibay. They are suspected of crimes under the articles "bribe-taking" and "official forgery and complicity in its commission."

She made fake vaccination certificates and handed them over to the citizens through an accomplice. For the services rendered, the laboratory employee received 45 thousand rubles from them, of which 19 thousand rubles were transferred to the nurse.
