How many months of performance bonuses did Gan Kim Yong get in the past few years for his “outstanding” leadership helming the Ministry of Health (MOH) and his ability to keep this HIV data leak from the public for so long?
If this incident still cannot wake you up to PAP’s level of incompetency and irresponsibility at the highest level, then probably nothing else will!
When important sensitive medical data has been leaked, the basic responsibility of any government should be to inform the affected patients as soon as possible, and offer them useful counseling and all possible help. After all, these data were leaked under their incompetent watch.
However, what happened at MOH under the hopeless PAP Minister Gan was the complete opposite. They kept quiet for two years and pretended as though nothing had happened until those patients’ information appeared on the internet.
Only then did they admit to the lapses and started practising their “I am Sorry” script once again. Does Gan really believe that he could keep those affected HIV patients in the dark forever – or at least until he and his boss have retired and enjoying their millions and let the future government carry their baby?
Next, out of those 14,200 patients whose information were accessed and stolen, 8,800 of them were foreigners. The numbers are very scary, especially for a small country like Singapore. I therefore ask if the PAP government is so seriously retarded and/or sleeping until they have no idea that we have so many HIV infected foreigners living, studying and working in our midst?
If only 10% of them have had sexual intercourse with Singaporeans, the consequences could be devastating and much, much more.
I am sure that his boss – labelled as a ‘dishonourable son’ by his own siblings – is aware of this HIV leak. If he doesn’t, that would be even worse. So, why didn’t Gan get the sack or at the very least, transferred out from MOH?
