Andrea Riposati is the CEO and co-founder of Dante Labs, an Italian firm. He faced probes for selling tens of thousands of faulty Covid-19 test results. 

The private laboratory under the control of Andrea Riposati was suspended when it had handed potentially faulty negative PCR test results to tens of thousands of people. Around 43,000 people had received incorrect negative test results because of his lab.

You can help us put a stop to online scams before they grow too big and end up ruining thousands of lives. A scam is a scam, doesn’t matter if it’s big or small. Now that this is out of the way, let’s get started with the review.

The UK Health Security Agency revealed the affected people were mainly in south-west England. Also, the NHS Test and Trace had to contact those people and ask them to take another test. 

Andrea Riposati

Immensa Health Clinic, an Andrea Riposati firm, was running the lab. What’s interesting is that at the time, the firm was only four months old. 

Also, Andrea’s other firm, Dante Labs was facing an investigation by the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority at the time. 

The watchdog had launched a probe into Dante Labs when customers complained that it failed to deliver tests and refused their refund requests. Dante Labs is a private travel testing provider. 

11/12/2023 Update
As of now, Andrea Riposati has not responded, nor has he apologized for his misdeeds. He has ignored our efforts to highlight the problems faced by his victims. Furthermore, he has only focused on propagating his fake PR.

People had raised concerns about Andrea Riposati’s private lab when reports of people began coming out who received negative COVID results from gold-standard PCR tests while testing positive with less accurate rapid antigen tests. 

After halting the lab’s operations, the UKHSA launched a probe. 

The UKHSA director told the media that as a result of their investigation, they were working with NHS Test and Trace to find out the technical issues that caused the inaccurate PCR results to reach the hands of people. 

Andrea Riposati Immensa Received £180 Million in Contracts:

NHS Test and Trace had granted more than £180 million to Andrea’s Immensa during the pandemic. 

According to experts in the matter, the primary cause of this issue was the opaque awarding of contracts with little relevant experience. As a consequence, most of the 43,000 victims went about their lives thinking they were negative and potentially infected thousands of others. 

Britain’s Covid testing program received a lot of backlash for relying too much on costly private contractors like Andrea Riposati. It wouldn’t be far-fetched to assume some corrupt dealings took place to help Andrea make more money during the pandemic. 

There are plenty of examples of such dealings. A recent example is Thomas Flohr, who ended up paying $16 million for helping a corrupt Nigerian businessman launder illegal funds.

Jonathan Ashworth, Labour’s shadow health secretary, described the decision to stop testing as the “latest fiasco in the sorry £37 billion tale of a system we were promised would be ‘world-beating'”.

He said that people need to ask questions about how this private firm which didn’t even exist 4 months ago was able to get more than a £120 million contract to run this lab.

Andrea Riposati

Another unusual occurrence was when the government press release announcing the suspension of Andrea Riposati’s lab contained a supportive quote from him. 

In the quote, he claimed that his firm was fully collaborating with UKHSA on the matter and that quality was paramount for them. He highlighted that they have proudly analyzed more than 2.5 million samples for NHS Test and Trace and are working with the excellent teams at the Department of Health and Social and UKHSA. 

What is corruption?

Corruption is the act of using public power for personal gain. This can be carried out by individuals in positions of authority such as elected politicians, civil servants, journalists, or school administrators. Private corruption also exists between individuals and businesses.

The Controversies of Dante Labs Andrea Riposati :

It wasn’t the first time an Andrea Riposati firm made the news for negative reasons. Dante Labs was the subject of an investigation because of several reports saying the company was treating customers unfairly.

They were not delivering PCR tests or their results on time. In some cases, Dante Labs hadn’t delivered any tests at all. Moreover, people were complaining that the company refused or delayed refunds by citing its terms and conditions. 

The company’s terms and conditions were limiting their clients’ rights unfairly. 

That’s not all.

In the US, Andrea Riposati’s Dante Labs issued a statement saying 5 people had received “used kits” due to an error by their shipping provider. Later, the DHMC promised to launch an investigation into Andrea’s company when the media found that their workers were fighting, sleeping, drinking, and playing football while working in the lab.

Still, the company succeeded in getting an additional contract of £50 million from DHSC.

More About Andrea Riposati: Net Worth, Wikipedia, and Experience

According to his LinkedIn page, Andrea Riposati is the CEO of Dante Genomics. 

He has been running the firm since December 2016. Also, he is a member of the Forbes Technology Council.

Before launching Dante Labs, Andrea was running Muse Technologies and before that, he worked at Amazon.

Andrea has a Master of Science in Economics and Financial Mathematics from Universita Bocconi. Also, he has a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School. 

Conclusion

After going through the above points, it’s clear that Andrea Riposati is not as reliable as he claims to be. Because of his firm, tens of thousands of people received faulty Covid test results which put a lot of lives at risk. 

However, he didn’t face any consequences for this carelessness and mismanagement. 

There are plenty of business leaders who abuse their wealth and power and Andrea isn’t an exception. For example, Rachel Drori was responsible for the first foodborne illness outbreaks in the US while Vik Bansal didn’t face any punishments despite many of his subordinates complaining about his abusive behavior. 

Beware of Andrea Riposati.

  3. The government needs to make an awareness camp related to the number of registered labs which are being issued licenses from the government and practicing illegal types of work.

  4. The public need to get aware of these fake laboratories because these evil creatures will not leave the chance of earning money even after getting lashed by the government.

  6. People like Andrea Riposati are making these loopholes and also making society filled with bugs because they are targeting the innocent public which is suffering from various types of scams.

  7. People need to get more aware of the type of scams taking place in the market and get aware of these nefarious labs.

  8. Now the scammers should understand the fields they should use because they are now entering the medical sector and making people suffer for making money.

  9. Now, this is the perfect example of using your degrees most negatively as he has completed his Master of Science in Economics and Mathematics. Now he using his knowledge in making calculations on how to make money after providing fake reports to his patients.

  10. My father suffered a lot from the Dantes lab and also got troubles on large scale for the first time and he was also getting demotivated after getting the reports. May the lord and the government provide the perfect punishment for these money-minded people.

  11. Why make these labs earn fame and not be controlled b the government of the UKHSA should take the real checkup of all the labs running on private grounds.

  12. The selfish nature of the lab made thousands of people get suffered and also made many people depressed after all these fake reports.

    The UK government should take some serious actions against these sites and also make necessary changes to cross-check the loopholes in the system and also make the laboratories under their control.

  14. No one knows how many other various nefarious labs are running through these scammers.

  15. The government is making no strict actions as required to the level of crime which this laboratory was making and also the owner Andrea Riposati was not brought properly into the limelight after committing such a dangerous crime.

  16. After a long time, I read that some investigation is being placed against these cheaters and money-minded people and also getting published in the news articles from the UK. The main problem is that the government isn’t making strict action against these cheaters.

  17. After committing such a heinous and cheap crime he wasn’t sent behind bars even though he wasn’t punished for making such a dangerous crime.

  18. Putting thousands of lives at risk and making them and making profit through false reports is the cheapest mindset any entrepreneur could have, putting thousands of lives at risk is not cool.

  19. Using your wealth for making money isn’t a good practice and in this case of covid it is cheap, Andrea Riposati was using his wealth and possession to make his company make profits and let the patients suffer. Providing false reports is completely unacceptable.

  20. How can the workers be so irresponsible even after being placed in the most dangerous and critical department they were making fun of and playing around? Irresponsible people like them are making the whole UK suffer.

  21. Reading the number of people infected which is approx 10,000 gives chills to the body how can some laboratories be such irresponsible in the case of covid? They were making the country suffer with the growth in the number of cases of covid.

  22. After the government got to know about these scammers they should have made a special investigation team for searching other fake labs being managed by people like Andrea Riposati. How can someone be so cruel towards his country members and provide fake reports related to such a fatal disease?

  23. The company should be charged heavily as they were taking covid lightly and due to their negligence, the whole UK suffered a backlash of covid due to these infected people who were disguised as not having covid but distributed to a bunch of people around.

  24. My mother also tested negative at Dante’s laboratory and was shocked after getting the reports which made her feel guilty for making contact with people outdoors. But after reading the reports on news channels she came to know that the reports provided may be false thus she got a little bit of positive energy.

  25. The efforts of UKHSA are appreciable because they are working on matters and trying to help out the suffering. This step shows the awareness of the government and also provides a sense of reliability to the citizens.

  26. These private firms are nowadays making such dangerous acts which could be liable for someone’s life, as they were making false reports claimed by the patients. Thus the UK government has taken charge and made them suffer for making such a scam. Even though they are not returning the money of their patients who asked for a refund after not getting the report of getting false reports.

    My brother also got his covid reports from Dantes’s lab where he tested positive without having any of the symptoms and the reports made him feel depressed for several weeks, instead we motivated him and asked him not to trust the medical reports and start gaining attention toward his life.

  29. Now, this is enough people misusing their powers to make people suffer even related to their health. This is disgusting when the world is suffering from harmful and contagious diseases and this company is risking people’s lives

  30. How could they give him more contracts?

    I wonder how much Andrea Riposati was paying to get his hands on those contracts.

    The horror of those who received faulty test results is unimaginable. They would have been so confused and frustrated. Andrea should be tried in court.
