HIV data leak: Calvin Cheng is right again

😱Don’t know whether to 😰 or 🤣

I know, I know, I’ve called him a dickhead

Why MLC has to talk about Calvin

——————————————————————————————-

But I have to agree with him yet again*.

Mr Cheng told TODAY: “Given the sensitivity and stigma surrounding HIV patients, I do not think there was an urgent need to tell the general public.

“There is, however, responsibility to tell the affected HIV patients. I think MOH genuinely thought in 2016 that the information was retrieved and the perpetrator caught and punished. The moment they realised this was not the case in 2018, they informed the affected people.

“In 2019, when the information was put out into the public domain, they announced this to the public… In this case, the need for privacy for the HIV patients takes precedence over the need for the general public to know.”

However, Mr Cheng said that the MOH “ought to have told the affected parties immediately in 2016 even after they apprehended (Brochez)”.

*I wrote before

I agree with Calvin Cheng. I know, I know, it’s getting to be a habit ( When being a minister turns from a calling into a job for life) . But what can I say except that he seems to have mellowed.)
