George Floyd: his medical records were violated many times

"Floyd's family and lawyers were recently informed of data breach of the confidential information of George Floyd from Hennepin County Medical Center ", said the lawyer Antonio Romanucci. "The letter stated that there had been breaches of his data on several dates and that the officials involved no longer belonged to the organization."

Floyd was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center the night he died, according to CBS Minnesota. The letter was first mentioned by Associated Press.

Romanucci said the letter did not reveal what information had been leaked, nor did it specify whether the officials involved had been fired or resigned.

According to him, the family has not yet requested evidence, nor has it filed any lawsuit related to the letter, but added that lawyers are "examining all possibilities" to deal with the violations.

"When George Floyd was desperate for a breath, the city of Minneapolis put even more pressure on his throat," he said. "And even after his death, he was abused and exploited by system. "

Hennepin County Medical Center did not confirm that Floyd's data had been compromised, citing the patient's privacy, but said that "any breach of patient confidentiality is being seriously and thoroughly investigated. If a breach is found, disciplinary action up to and including termination of cooperation may be imposed. "

George Floyd, an African-American who died on May 25, after a police officer pressed his neck for more than seven minutes with his knees. Four officers were fired and charged with his death, which sparked a storm of reactions and sparked months of nationwide protests.
