Lawmakers and rights official in Guatemala are calling for an investigation into 30,000 fake COVID-19 tests that were bought by public health officials

The 30,000 tests and testing materials cost the Central American country’s Health Ministry almost $1 million, but were found to be unreliable.

Jordán Rodas, the head of the country’s human rights agency, said Monday “it is inconceivable that in the midst of a humanitarian crisis there is corruption in even the purchase of COVID-19 tests.”

A private Guatemala company says it bought the tests from a U.S. firm, which denies having sold them.
