Duo arrested for hiding health data

The Department of Health today laid holding charges against two people for providing misleading details and withholding information in connection with the Government’s investigation of COVID-19 cases.   The 29-year-old man and the 31-year-old woman are COVID-19 patients. They are suspected of violating the Prevention & Control of Disease (Disclosure of Information) Regulation and will appear at Kowloon City Magistracy on May 10.   During the department’s epidemiological investigation of confirmed cases, the man was suspected of giving false or misleading information to an authorised officer on April 16, while the woman was suspected of failing to comply with the requirement to provide information to an authorised officer on April 17.   The department said it is grossly irresponsible to provide false or misleading information to or conceal information from an authorised officer as this may hinder contact tracing and pose a serious threat to public health.   Resolute actions will be taken against breaches of relevant regulations, it added.
