The family of a 54-year-old retiree who died in Praia Grande, on the coast of São Paulo, Brazil fears that he died due to lack of proper treatment, since the Coronavirus death certificate was signed the day before by a false doctor.

He was arrested after the discovery that he had cloned the credential of a Colombian ophthalmologist, the newspaper A Tribuna revealed in its Sunday edition.

‘I went into the room, talked to him and asked how my brother was doing. The doctor told me that he was very well and that he was going to get out of this. He also told me that he was walking and talking ‘, the victim’s companion told the newspaper.
