Public Health Wales publishes 18,000 COVID-19 test results by mistake

According to the BBC, the details of more than 18 000 people who tested positive for the Coronavirus were published online by mistake by Public Health Wales in the UK. The incident was the result of ‘individual human error’ after the results were uploaded to a public server. Public Health Wales stated that the data of 18 105 Welsh residents was viewable online for 20 hours on 30 August.
