The Health Ministry, grappling with the scale of the issue, disclosed that the problem impacted dozens, potentially hundreds of individuals over the past few weeks. Patients found themselves prescribed medications meant for others or incorrect drugs for their treatments, shedding light on the severity of the glitch affecting the medical administration system.
The origin of the problem initially stirred speculation, with uncertainties about whether it stemmed from a software bug or a potential cyberattack. However, subsequent investigations by ministry officials and Chameleon’s provider revealed that the chaos resulted from a glitch in the program.
Swift action was taken to address the issue, with an update circulated to rectify the software problem. While the Health Ministry works to fully comprehend the implications of this incident, the focus remains on ensuring patient safety and rectifying the prescriptions issued during the period of the glitch.
