Un medico del Texas accusato di aver rubato una fiala di vaccino Covid-19

Un medico della sanità pubblica in Texas è stato accusato di aver rubato una fiala di vaccino Covid-19, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.

Il procuratore distrettuale Kim Ogg ha dichiarato giovedì in una dichiarazione che il dott. Hasan Gokal is accused of theft by a public servant, a misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and a $ 4,000 bene.
Gokal is accused of taking a vial with nine doses on December 29, 2020. He was working at a vaccination site in Humble, north of Houston, Ogg said.
Authorities contend the doctordisregarded county protocols in place to ensure vaccine is not wasted but administered to vulnerable populations and front-line workers on a waiting list.
    He abused his position to place his friends and family in line in front of people who had gone through the lawful process to be there,” Ogg said in the statement. “What he did was illegal, and he’ll be held accountable under the law.
    Gokal’s attorney said his client looks forward to righting what he calls a wrong.
    The doctor isa dedicated public servant who ensured that COVID-19 vaccine dosages that would have otherwise expired went into the arms of people who met the criteria for receiving it,” attorney Paul Doyle said in a statement. “Harris County would have preferred Dr. Gokal let the vaccines go to waste and are attempting to disparage this man’s reputation in the process to support this policy.
    Gokal told a fellow employee what he did and that person reported him to supervisors, hanno detto le autorità. He was later fired.
    Harris County Public Health said that it will not release a statement.
      Doyle said he expected to have more to say on the matter Friday.
      CNN has not been able to confirm Gokal’s first court appearance.
