“The federal government has sent more than $124 million to reimburse the Center for COVID Control for conducting COVID-19 tests.
At its busiest, the Center for COVID Control gathered more than 80,000 tests per day from over 300 locations across 26 states.
However, many states became suspicious of the company, whose 29-year-old founder Aleya Siyaj had previously started an axe-throwing lounge and a donut shop,” according to NBC News.
Siraj and her husband, Akbar Syed, regularly boasted about their wealthy lifestyle on social media, The Hill reported. Their photos included two Lamborghinis, a Ferrari and a mansion valued at $1.36 million.
One of the first people to take action against the company was Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Ellison’s office issued a news release Wednesday explaining why he had filed a lawsuit against the company in Hennepin County District Court.
“The Attorney General received numerous complaints from Minnesotans who submitted COVID-19 tests at pop-up sites around the state-operated by Center for Covid Control who reported never receiving their test results from the company’s associated lab, Doctors Clinical Laboratory, despite waiting for weeks or more, or who received test results far later than the companies advertised,” the release stated.
“Some Minnesotans also reported receiving test results from the companies despite having never submitted a sample for testing. Still, others reported receiving test results with false or inaccurate information about their test.”
According to NBC, “the Oregon Department of Justice and the Illinois attorney general opened civil investigations into the company, while authorities in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Washington and California each shut down some or all of the company’s test sites in their states.”
