Govt Says No CoWIN Data Has Been Leaked

New Delhi: The Union Health ministry has clarified that there has been no data leak from the CoWin portal and information of all residents is safe and secure on the digital platform.

A PTI report on Friday said that personal data of more than 20,000 people in India had been leaked from a government server.

“It is clarified that no data has leaked from CoWin portal and the entire data of residents is safe and secure on this digital platform. It is also clarified that while Union ministry of health and family welfare will enquire into the substance of the news, prima facie the assertion is not correct, as CoWin collects neither the address of the person nor the RT-PCR test results for Covid-19 vaccination,” the ministry said in a statement following reports of alleged leak of data.
