Makati police arrested two Chinese “doctors” for allegedly running an unregistered clinic being used as a coronavirus disease 2019 treatment facility.

Major Gideon Ines, Jr., assistant chief of police for Operation and Makati Police Investigation Unit chief, said that they found four Chinese patients being treated for Covid-like symptoms. He identified the suspects as David Lai and Bruce Liao.

Around 4 p.m., Ines and his team raided the facility after receiving a tip that there were sick Chinese patients going to the unregistered clinic located at the fifth floor of La Sema Building on Sampaloc Street, in Barangay San Antonio, Makati.

The name of the clinic was Goldstar Medical Clinic and Pharmacy, which Ines said, was occupying the whole fifth floor of the building.

“We found four Chinese patients confined there. They said they were experiencing COVID-like symptoms,” he said.

According to Ines, they went to the clinic and used a Chinese asset to transact with the suspect.

“We used a Chinese asset to pretend that he is sick and need treatment,” he said. “Despite not being really ill, the Chinese doctor said that he may need to be confined at their facility.”

The police said the suspect gave their asset medicines for his “fever.”

Moreover, Ines said several drugs written in Chinese, medicines for COVID-19, rapid testing kits, and swab test kits, were confiscated at the clinic, worth around P5.2 million.

“There were so many medicines. They also have COVID-19 testing kits,” he said.
