Health authorities in Bangladesh say the number of people being tested for coronavirus has fallen by almost half, following a huge fake screening scandal.
More than a dozen people, including a hospital owner in Dhaka, have been arrested on allegations of issuing bogus certificates to thousands of patients, saying they were virus-free without testing them.
There were 18,000 tests being carried out each day in late June, but that has fallen to just over 10,000 in the past two weeks.
Experts say there is increasing public distrust of testing following the scandal.
Bangladesh has recorded more than 200,000 confirmed infections with 2,618 deaths.
