Public urged to stay alert to emails purported to be issued by CHP
     The Department of Health (DH) today (March 3) appealed to members of the public to stay alert of a fraudulent email purported to be issued by the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the DH.

     The email concerned (address: enquiry_chpweb@dh.gov.hk) adopted the same address as the official enquiry email of the CHP. However, it was not sent out by the CHP. The email alleged that the CHP would conduct surveillance on the health of universities' staff due to the epidemic, and requested the recipients to provide their health and travel records. The DH clarified that no such email has been issued by the DH.

     The DH has referred the case to the Hong Kong Police Force for further investigation.

     Anyone who has provided his or her personal information in accordance with the instructions of the email, should contact the Police.
