Chicago pharmacist Tangtang Zhao, 34, was arrested for selling the stolen vaccination certificate. Zhao repeatedly stole 12 times at a pharmacy in a nationwide chain that also distributes and administers the new coronavirus vaccine he was working for, and obtained 125 genuine vaccination certificates. It was sold online for about $ 10 (1100 yen).

Zhao has been charged with 12 cases of 'theft of government assets,' and officially announced by the Justice Ministry that each case can be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. 'The Justice Department and law enforcement partners are committed to protecting Americans from these crimes in this national emergency,' said Kenneth A. Polite, Jr., Deputy Prosecutor of the Justice Department's Criminal Division. The act of selling the prosecution certificate to the United States, in turn, exposes millions of Americans to the potential for serious illness and death. It's not just an insult to those who are playing their part in stopping the new coronavirus infection, it's a federal crime with serious consequences. '

The one sold in this case was a genuine vaccination certificate, but there are many 'fake vaccination certificates' on the market in the United States. The United States Customs and Border Protection has issued a statement in Memphis, Tennessee that it has seized 3017 counterfeit inoculation certificates in 121 investigations, all of which were brought from China. It mentions that.

'It's your decision not to get vaccinated, but you can order counterfeit goods, waste police officers' time, and law.' Please do not break or make false declarations. '
