Covid-19 nursing home expert panel is established

The Health Minister has announced the establishment of a Covid 19 nursing home expert panel.

It’ll look at the measures currently in place here to protect residents, and review the international response to coronavirus in those settings.

867 people living in nursing homes in the Republic have died from Covid 19 so far.

The expert panel will start its work next week and prepare a report for the Minister by the end of June.
