Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has this afternoon announced that nursing staff and support staff from Roscommon University Hospital are to be sent to the East Galway Nursing Home that is at present dealing with a serious outbreak of Covid 19.

Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice raised the matter this afternoon in the Dail where he said  25 out of 27 residents in the home have tested positive, while one of them has died.

 It was also claimed 7 out of 8 nursing staff have also been infected, along with 10 out of 11 healthcare assistants.

Deputy Fitzmaurice says the nursing home contacted the HSE for additional help, however, to date the response by the HSE has been described as less than adequate.
