COVID: Seven are denounced for selling false vaccination certificates

The Ministry of Labor launched an operation against companies or individuals that sell false COVID-19 vaccination certificates or laboratory tests, with the intention that consumers who have not received the doses against the new coronavirus can have fun in clubs, casinos , stadiums and massive events, among others. For now, seven have been identified that offer these apocryphal documents.

“There are seven complaints filed” with the Jalisco Attorney General’s Office, says Marco Valerio, Secretary of Labor in the State. Five offer vaccination certificates and tests through Facebook and two others for WhatsApp. “They are offered massively”.

Yesterday the new restrictions began to reduce the wave of infections in Jalisco and those who attend these establishments must carry any of the official documents. Given the actions of the Secretariat, next Friday there will be more information on the operation against this “black market”, so they will be accompanied by the Cyber ​​Police of the Prosecutor’s Office to locate and punish those who abuse the pandemic. “He will do what is conducive to find out who is behind it.”

Altering or falsifying the laboratory test to “prove” that the person is negative to the new coronavirus will be sentenced to two to six years in prison, according to the State Penal Code.

However, the punishment for falsifying the vaccination certificate issued by the federal Ministry of Health is raised from four to eight years.

It highlights that the Government of Jalisco announced that it is preparing an application to have a vaccination certificate of state origin.

On the other hand, Marco Valerio confirmed that in the first two weeks the medical disabilities of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) in Jalisco have skyrocketed. In the first fortnight of the year, 12,500 were issued, an unprecedented figure triggered by the pandemic.

The above coincides with the relaunch of the page, that facilitates the delivery of disability over the internet, with the intention of preventing beneficiaries from going to hospitals and being infected.

Profeco must monitor the cost of tests

Private laboratories could abuse the cost of confirmatory tests for COVID-19. In this case, the deputy of Morena Óscar Vásquez Llamas presented a point of legislative agreement, requesting the state delegate of the Federal Consumer Protection Agency, Sebastián Hernández Méndez, and the State Secretary of Health, Fernando Petersen Aranguren, that in the field of their powers, monitor that there are no excessive increases in the prices of the tests, and if necessary, take action to sanction those who carry out the increases.

The Federal Consumer Protection Law, in its article 10 BIS, establishes the express prohibition of unjustifiably raising prices in the context of natural, meteorological and health contingencies.

The legislator assured that “the excessive increase in prices in COVID detection tests in the context of the health emergency is an assumption that perfectly frames as particularly serious cases contemplated in the law, since they are products or services that due to market circumstances, the increase in their prices would be affecting a group of consumers, in addition to the fact that suppliers would be taking advantage of the shortage or difficulty in supplying a good or in the provision of a service, for which they could be creditors of sanction”.

The deputy regretted that the state government has not contemplated, among the actions to face the current increase in cases, surveillance of establishments that trade at excessive prices with medical supplies in the health emergency.

Yesterday, Friday, the new measures began to operate in Jalisco to avoid contagion of COVID-19. Clubs, bars, restaurants-bars and casinos, among other establishments, must ask people over 18 years of age for the certificate, proof of vaccination or negative PCR test, in order to enter.

The mayor of Guadalajara, Pablo Lemus Navarro, said that traditional restaurants should not ask for any of these receipts, since The measure is only applicable to those establishments that concentrate agglomeration of people due to not having enough space between the tables.

“Just clarifying, the traditional restaurants called tablecloths should NOT ask for any vaccination certificate or proof, The mandatory measure is aimed at those who, with a restaurant-bar license, actually act as clubs,” the mayor of Guadalajara reiterated through his Twitter account.

The municipe also said that during the operations that the city council will mount, it will be supervised that the restaurants-bars also request the voucher because it has been identified that these places take advantage of their “restaurant” license, but allow crowds similar to those of the bars and clubs, increasing the risk of contagion among people who go to their premises.

The establishments of the municipality that this weekend do not comply with these measures will be entitled to a warning, however, he added, if they do not comply with what was requested, they could be closed as of the following week.
