Earlier today, Tan Tock Seng Hospital apologised for mislabelling COVID-19 samples resulting in a secondary school student wrongly diagnosed with COVID-19.
The secondary 1 student had to go through re-testing and the results showed that she is negative for COVID-19.
The following is TTSH media release
“We are sorry for the mistake and sincerely regret the inconvenience caused to our patients and her school,” TTSH said in the media release.
“We have audited our laboratory testing for COVID-19 for that period and no other mislabelling was discovered. We have also put in place additional checks to prevent such an incident from occurring again.”
