We will not reveal identity of patients: Dr Fong

We will not reveal identity of patients: Dr Fong The Health Ministry will not reveal the identities of patients tested positive for COVID-19.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong while speaking in a press conference said physician-patient privilege is sacred and they will not violate it.

“The thoroughness of our contact tracing means that the Ministry has never needed to publish the names of any of our patients,” he said.

“Sometimes, patients choose to share their coronavirus positive status but doing so is just that, a personal choice. So please stop asking us about the personal details of any patients.

“We will never give them, physician-patient privilege is sacred and we will not violate it that is my answer today, and it will be my answer tomorrow and every day after,” he said.

He said he was upset to learn that identities of the two doctors tested positive for coronavirus were leaked on social media.

“The identities of our two doctors who tested positive for COVID-19 were leaked on social media,” he said.

“Their personal choice to reveal their status was taken from them, and it has impacted them both quite badly. Those who are sharing their identities should stop.

“I know that preventing information about a person from being shared on social media is akin to trying to stop the tides with a broom but that doesn’t mean I won’t try.

“I want to appeal to people to think twice before they share this sort of private information. It reflects poorly on your values and respect for your fellow Fijians."

He said the sharing of private and confidential information does real damage to patients who truly do not need any more stress in their lives.
