According to Aftonbladet’s sources, the police in Sweden are investigating nationwide fraud with corona tests which may have affected up to 100,000 people in the country.

On Saturday, the newspaper reported that a private health trust has performed PCR tests and made corona certificates without submitting the samples for analysis.

According to Aftonbladet, the main suspect may have cashed in over 100 million kroner during the pandemic. He is suspected of, among other things, fraud and the spread of infection.

The company is said to have offered PCR tests and corona certificates for around NOK 1,500 each at clinics in Stockholm and a number of other places in the country.

Six suspects

According to the sources, a total of six people are treated as suspects in the case, which is now the highest priority for the police in Stockholm. 

Together with the Inspectorate for Health and Care, the police have searched a number of addresses in the metropolitan area over the past week. 

On several occasions, they found premises largely cleared out but had traces of sampling activities, Aftonbladet reports.
