Police arrest Chinese man for conducting Coronavirus home test with stolen kits

A chinese man, Tianxing Zhang was arrested by Police in Peru for illegally conducting rapid coronavirus tests on the public with stolen kits from Peru health ministry.

It was reported that the test kits were newly-delivered to Peru’s health ministry.

According to the Police, Zhang, 36, was arrested in the Brena district of Lima as he was about to take samples from two women at the door of their house.

The police statement disclosed that he “was proceeding to carry out rapid tests for COVID-19 with kits that he had stolen” from the Lima Sur health authority where he worked.

Zhang was wearing a mask and a light blue medical apron at the time of his arrest by the state security police.

Both women had paid him to carry out a rapid home test, without health ministry approval.

However, Zhang admitted to have stolen the test kits from the Directorate of Integrated Health Network of Lima Sur where he worked and was not authorized to conduct any rapid home test by the health ministry.

He also confessed to stealing two batches of the test kits for personal monetary gain on people who suspected they were ill with the coronavirus.

Police found a bagpack with 25 COVID-19 tests and other medical supplies at his home.
