COVID-19: Plateau State Govt Investigating Leaked Test Results



Plateau State Government is investigating the circumstances surrounding the leak of the confidential laboratory result of some suspected COVID-19 cases carried out at the National Veterinary Research Institute Testing Centre in Vom which have been circulating in the social media.

The Government expresses immense disappointment with this unprofessional act which has not only breached ethical medical standards, but also exposed the suspected cases to negative consequences including stigmatization and discrimination.

Government totally condemns this act which regretably has the tendency of jeopardising its efforts at fighting the Corona virus pandemic that is ravaging the world.

Accordingly, the investigation will cover the entire process of the test from sample collection, investigation and result dissemination.

The Government assures members of the public not to be deterred by this isolated incident as all measures have been taken to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
Members of the public are advised to continue to abide by all the regulations of social distancing, hygiene and sanitation and also report any suspected case.
