Hong Kong - Data on more than 3,000 patients in Hong Kong public
hospitals has been lost through the theft of computer memory sticks,
officials said Monday.

executive Shane Solomon said.

A task force headed by former privacy commissioner Stephen Lau has

medical data on almost 700 Hong Kong youngsters with developmental
problems had been lost on a stolen memory stick.
