A 36-year-old hospital worker has been arrested for revealing personal information and medical records of the late Kathy Chow, who was revealed to have passed away on 11 December.

As reported on Mingpao, the man was nabbed after he took photos of the records and posted them on WeChat groups, which had led to the spread of information about her passing and caused adverse impacts.

The data showed that the patient lived alone, suffered from hypertension and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and was found lying on the ground by colleagues on the morning of the 11 December.

The District Health Commission said that the department is handling the matter and that result will be announced as soon as possible after the investigation is completed.

It is noted that Kathy’s reps have declined to comment on rumours of her death prior, and only released their statement a day after the rumours made its round on the internet.

The actress was 57.
