On Medical Confidentiality (Not Only) in Time of Coronavirus

Pavel Uherek. Cas Lek Cesk. .

Abstract

One of the compulsory secret exceptions derives from the situation within which the data about patient must be provided to the third person in the interest of his/her health protection. Despite some interpretation difficulties any providing information according to this legal exception is allowed only on the base of proved and re-examined facts. The state of emergency itself is not the base for the compulsory secret breach.

Keywords: announcement duty; compulsory secret; coronavirus; infectious disease; medical confidentiality; medical records; mental illness.
