In the United States, a woman in her 20s went to Hawaii with a fake COVID-19 vaccination certificate and was found to have spelled it wrong.
According to the Associated Press on the 2nd (local time), a 24-year-old woman living in Illinois arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii on a plane on the 23rd of last month, and appeared at the airport again on the 28th, five days later, and was arrested by prosecutors.
The woman's actions were suspicious because of one typo.
The woman had previously registered her vaccination certificate with the state in an attempt to evade the ten-day quarantine obligation imposed on travelers to Hawaii, but she was caught by prosecutors who were suspicious of it.
The certificate submitted by this woman says the name of the vaccine is 'Maderna', which is believed to be a misspelling of 'Moderna'.
It also raised suspicion that the vaccination site was listed as Delaware rather than Illinois, the woman's hometown.
In fact, it turns out that there are no records of the woman's immunizations with Delaware authorities.
The woman was arrested at the airport on the 28th of last month while evading the prosecution's investigation network by not staying at the hotel reported in advance.
The woman was detained on charges of violating the state of Hawaii's COVID-19 emergency measures, and if convicted at trial, could face a fine of $5,000 or more than one year in prison.Keywords:
