Health Officials questioned and released on leaked documents of COVID-19 cases

Health Officials questioned and released on leaked documents of COVID-19 cases

Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says that they have questioned some health officials with regards to the leaking of names of the 6th and 7th COVID-19 cases in Fiji.

He says some of these officials were questioned overnight and released but police are confident that they will get to the source of this leaked document.

Qiliho says they are getting to the end of this investigation.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama earlier announced that some of these two COVID-19 patients’ personal details were unfortunately leaked to the public and the Ministry of Health staff are devastated that someone is leaking confidential information.

He says these leaks have made the ministry’s jobs far more difficult and every time people on Facebook share this leaked information, they do so at the expense of the doctors, nurses and other medical staff trying their absolute best to inform the public in an accurate and timely manner.
