KUALA LUMPUR: Authorities have detected forged Covid-19 results slips which were being used in a cross-border travel attempt.
In a statement on Thursday (Jan 28), KPJ Healthcare Berhad said it has been made aware of reports where falsified or counterfeit results slips using Lablink letterheads had been used in the attempt.
KPJ Health Berhad owns and manages Lablink (M) Sdn Bhd, which is KPJ's pathology laboratory arm.
"KPJ and Lablink would like to reaffirm that these were fraudulent and falsified documents, and internal investigations confirm that all these documents were not issued by Lablink.
"KPJ and Lablink view this matter very seriously, and are working with the authorities to facilitate their investigations," the statement read.
It added that all Lablink Covid-19 tests were carried out in a systematic, organised and ethical manner, and results are transmitted securely and confidentially to patients and customers based on established and clear protocols.
"Verification on any Covid-19 test results issued by Lablink can be done by calling Lablink (M) Sdn Bhd at 03-4023 4588," it said.
