The security failure has mainly affected people living in Madrid.

Felipe is among high-profile figures whose data has been exposed in the breach.

“It is false that any citizen can enter the web pages of the Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid to obtain the Covid certificate and that confidential information such as clinical data of the king, the president of the Government or other former presidents can be accessed.”

They added that “in any case the incident did not affect clinical data and, of course, did not compromise the alteration of any information in the databases.

“In addition, to access that information, the ID of the person in question would be needed.

“We insist that this gap is already blocked.”

By mid-afternoon on Wednesday the data was no longer visible.
