A nurse who ‘simulated’ the inoculation has been arrested and a total of 50 people are being interrogated
Police in Italy have arrested a nurse on suspicion of “simulating” administering a Covid-19 inoculation as part of an illegal network to provide anti-vaccine bribers with sought-after ‘green passes.’
According to a statement from the Ancona police, a major investigation, covering several provinces in central Italy, helped to “discover a corruptive system that allowed those who did not want to get vaccinated to acquire the certificates anyway.”

Out of 50 people who “now have to answer for the crimes of corruption, wrong ideology and embezzlement,” a nurse responsible for Covid-19 jabs at a vaccination center in Ancona has been jailed, while four suspected “mediators” have been placed under house arrest. The other 45 have been ordered to keep in their municipalities and to report daily to the police. Searches by law enforcement officers carried out as part of the investigation also uncovered some €18,000 ($20,460) of suspected illicit profits.
Investigators said that a bribed nurse “simulated the injection of vaccine” before throwing away the real measure. Footage of the alleged incident was released by police, who said the actions led to the waste of “meaningful public resources” and compromised the effectiveness of the national ‘green certificates’ policy.
New ‘super green pass’ restrictions came into force in Italy on January 10. According to the latest rules, proof of Covid-19 vaccination or recovery from the illness is required for accessing most public facilities in addition as transport and hospitality. The move was prompted by an increase in coronavirus infections and is due to keep in effect until March 31, 2022.
