A member of the Covid-19 Expert Panel on Nursing Homes says it would be nice if nursing home residents could avail of the rapid testing turnaround times afforded to the Health Minister.

Minister Stephen Donnelly began to fell unwell yesterday afternoon following a cabinet meeting, and was tested and given a negative result within a few hours.

There are currently 41 active outbreaks of the virus in nursing homes nationwide with a system of serial testing now in place.

Professor Cillian Twomey has told the covid-19 response committee today that residents would benefit from rapid turnaround times given the devastation caused to the sector during the pandemic.
