Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

SWP 8: Choose Your Own Adventure
#33
Given that there hasn't been news for the people that have already left the groups already, I've had the thought that perhaps the Ministry is keeping everything quiet until everyone is done with their expeditions. Which could explain as to why the people that have gone to the infirmary have not been announced in the DP or WW. That's been my headcanon so far, and I was wondering if I could get this confirmed or denied as site canon.

Short answer: That's not accurate.
Long answer:
The Ministry isn't actually keeping anything quiet, (Ross is big on transparency,) but even if they wanted to, they wouldn't have to. The DP is reporting in the fog based on reporters on the ground, who have to communicate to the London office through owl mail, which isn't super timely.
More importantly than that, privacy laws would ensure that the Infirmary can't just tell reporters who's out/what happened without breaking the law. Any reports would be "a woman was picked up by the infirmary," which isn't, really, article material, and reporters don't have access to the infirmary or hospital to get more information.
