hep c in tainted blood products in japan

There were 165 people exposed to HCV after receiving tainted blood products at a hospital in Japan. For over five years, the Ministry of Health denied that it knew that the blood products were tainted and there is now an investigation going on to figure out why they covered up the truth. The company says it didn't tell the patients in order to "protect [their] privacy". Sounds like fishy logic to me.
