The nurse stole two doses of the Corona vaccine at the Detroit Convention Center. The event took place at the Detroit Convention Center in Michigan, a site designated as a vaccine distribution site for the city of Detroit.
The unidentified nurse is facing charges of stealing two doses of Corona vaccine. One of the nurse’s colleagues, who noticed the theft of the vaccine, immediately informed the vaccine distribution officials about the incident. According to local media reports, the nurse was arrested after the vaccine was stolen and before leaving the Detroit conference building.
The nurse’s motive for stealing the modern vaccine has not yet been determined. It is not clear if he stole the vaccine to inject it into his family or friends or intended to sell it.
