DR RUTH ACENG CRACKS WHIP, SUSPENDS SELMEK MEDICAL SERVICES FROM CONDUCTING COVID19 TESTS

By Joel Mugabi

Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng’s Ministry of Health (MoH) has announced the suspension of Selmek Medical Services from carrying out Covid19 testing after persistent reports of issuance of fake results.

The Ministry got several alerts from the Entebbe International Airport and other laboratories that the results from tests conducted by Selmek were largely unreliable. “MoH observed a high rate of fraudulent COVID-19 results associated with Selmek Medical Services,” it said in a statement.

MoH further noted that it had not authorized Selmek Medical Services  as collection point for samples to be tested for Covid19, warning the public against seeking the facility’s services.

“All Covid19 testing laboratories have accordingly been instructed to stop receiving Covid19 samples from Selmek Medical Services,” the Ministry further warned.

As the Dr Aceng-led MoH team continues to work hard to ensure that lives are saved from the lethal Covid19 second wave, some unscrupulous people and companies have made it a habit to mint cash by offering fake products and services, prompting the Ministry to urge the public to always be on alert as they seek health services.
