Fri, 24 July 2020 | Covid-19 (Health): Statements

This afternoon in the Dáil, I got the opportunity to raise the following questions with the Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly, in relation to COVID-19:

 How many community testing facilities do we have currently operational in the country?

 Are we still using the International Laboratory in Munich, Germany or is all analysis of samples taking place here in Ireland?

 How will the contract tracing system play out over the next few months – will the contact tracing app take over or will the manual contact tracing telephones continue?

 When will the health care system open again to non-covid illnesses and non-covid conditions?
