The Inspectorate of the municipal Department of Health on Friday announced that Fruit Advertising Company Limited, located on Ba Thang Hai Street in District 11, had been found launching untrue ads to help attract customers for medical service providers. The discovery was made on Tuesday when health inspectors coordinated with local police and other concerned agencies inspected this company’s office.
