Has CoWIN data leaked? NHA clarifies

Cybercriminals had posted the personal data of scores of people and claimed that it was the data from India. National Health Authority CEO R S Sharma said in a statement, while we will enquire into the substance of the news, prima facie the assertion is not correct. The reason is that Co-WIN collects neither the address of the person nor the RT-PCR test results for vaccination. Further, we would like to assert that no data has leaked from Co-WIN portal and the entire data of residents is safe and secure on our platform.
