No data has leaked from Co-WIN portal: Centre

New Delhi, January 21

The government today dismissed reports on alleged data leak of Covid vaccine beneficiaries saying the Co-WIN platform was safe and secure.

“There have been several media reports claiming that the data stored in Co-WIN portal has been leaked online.It is clarified that no data has leaked from the Co-WIN portal and the entire data of residents is safe and secure on this digital platform,” the health ministry said in a statement.

The ministry added that it will enquire into the substance of the alleged data leak (as claimed by some people on social media and reported by a section of the media).

“Prime facie the assertion of data leak is not correct, as Co-WIN collects neither the address of the person nor the RT-PCR test results for Covid-19 vaccination,” the government said.
