Corona virus Ireland: Testing second Kovid-19 leap will not continue

Published on

HSE has secretly warned the government that the state’s current Kovid-19 testing administration will not be able to cope with the increase in demand in the coming weeks.

The Sunday Independent learned that HSE chief executive Paul Raid told ministers at a Cabinet Kovid-19 subcommittee meeting on Friday. HSE currently has no potential to increase capacity beyond performing 14,000 tests per day or one lakh tests per week.

Reid warned private ministers this weekend that as the country was subject to new restrictions on viruses and Dublin, there would be no immediate solution to the obstacles in the testing process despite huge demand for lab capacity around the world.
