The mystery of the day see if you can figure it out!

A Houston doctor that was head of a Coronavirus clinic was in possession of a vial of vaccine that had one dose taken out of it at 6:45 PM. The vaccine would be useless in six hours so he took it upon himself to find people who qualified for the drug before it expired. He found 9 patients who qualified before going home. There was one dose left in the vial he injected that into the arm of his wife who had a severe pulmonary condition.

In Hillsdale Michigan a hospital administrator took hundreds of doses of vaccine for employees and staff of his alma mater Hillsdale College. Most of these people were on no list of priority for the vaccine. Yet he made them available to the college while people actually on list were unable to get an appointment. He subsequently said he could do anything he wanted and lashed out at people who were critical of his decision and his judgement.

One of these people was originally from Pakistan. Can you guess which one was charged with stealing and fired from his job?

NEXSTAR) — A Texas doctor had just six hours to administer 10 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine was set to expire and had to be used before it went to waste.

So Dr. Hasan Gokal went to work finding people to give the vaccine out of his Houston home, including strangers and acquaintances. According to the New York Times, he gave the vaccine to two women — one in her 80s and one in her 90s, both with underlying health issues — a woman with a child who uses a ventilator and his wife, who has a pulmonary disease.

Gokal was fired for his actions, and the Harris County District Attorney’s office charged him with stealing the vaccine, worth $135.

“He abused his position to place his friends and family in line in front of people who had gone through the lawful process to be there,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement. “What he did was illegal, and he’ll be held accountable under the law.”
