TodayOnline reports the Hong Kong Hospital Authority has denied leaking to the police records of 76 people who received emergency treatment during last week's anti-extradition bill protests. Pierre Chan revealed printed records from a health care worker, which included notes on where the patients had been and were labeled for police, that were stored on a clinical system that does not require a login to gain access. "Only medical staff can use the computer at the accident and emergency ward, and we would not provide such information to a third party," Hong Kong Hospital Authority Director of Quality and Safety Chung Kin-lai said. Hong Kong Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data Stephen Kai-yi Wong has begun an investigation into whether the system holding the patient information required a login.
