Fake COVID Tests Are Uncovered in Quintana Roo

20% of the SARs-COV2 tests issued by laboratories in the country are false.

Through a collaboration and interoperability agreement between the Quintana Roo Institute of Innovation and Technology (IQIT) and GenoBank.io, it will now be possible for anyone to verify the certificate of a COVID-19 test, by means of a QR code. According to Marco Bravo Fabian, head of the Quintana Roo Institute of Innovation and Technology (IQIT), this QR code may be used without sending any of your personal data to the cloud, thereby avoiding the potential for misuse.
