Remember the doctor linked to Healing the Divide, Jipson Quah?
It seems like he had more anti-vaccination accomplices, this time being an Australian man.
Lied to MOH About Vaccination Status
David Christopher Newton, 43, worked with Jipson Quah and his assistant Thomas Chua to lie to the Ministry of Health about vaccination statuses. These instances happened between 26 December 2021 and 15 January 2022.
During that period of time, Newton did not receive the COVID-19 vaccine. However, he worked with the pair to tell MOH that he had received the Sinopharm vaccine, so that he could have the certificate.
The three men also help another woman obtain the certificate without getting vaccinated, by falsely reporting her vaccination status to MOH.
Charged Two Counts of Making False Representation
On 8 June, Newton was charged in a district court with two counts of conspiring to make false representations to MOH.
For each count, he could be jailed up to 20 years and fined. He was offered bail of $15,000 and his pre-trial conference will be on 5 July.
Quah Suspended for 18 Months
In case you didn’t hear about what happened to Jipson Quah, he’s been suspended from medical practice for 18 months.
During the court hearings, it was said that Quah had administered a saline solution to approximately 15 people, and then recorded false vaccination statuses for them on the national registry.
Reportedly, he had priced the fake COVID-19 doses between $1,000 and $1,500 for at least three of his patients.
Furthermore, Quah had also conducted at least 430 instances of remote pre-event testing (PET) through Zoom calls over 15 days last December, which was not allowed at that point in time.
Not only did he break the law, but he also charged an exorbitant price for the tests.
Allegedly, the 33-year-old general practitioner charged a monthly subscription fee of S$125 for daily testing between December 2021 and January 2022, or $12 for a single test when it was deemed necessary.
As of 23 March, the interim order committee declared that Quah’s registration has been suspended for the next eighteen months, which is the maximum amount of time a medicine licence can be suspended, or until the disciplinary proceedings have concluded.
The four clinics owned or managed by Quah were given notices of suspensions as well, and their approval to administer antigen rapid tests (ART) was revoked.
He also has to face criminal charges for false representation to MOH, but that particular trial hasn’t started yet. For more details, you can read a more in-depth article here.
