Stephen Donnelly only told of contact tracing fiasco last night

Total joke. This lockdown is a disgrace and comes as a result of the HSE not bei g able to adequately manage testing and contact tracing

It's the way he tells them archieenright johnj115

He is a muppet anyway

Why is he supposedly always only told about something after the press release the fiasco. 🙄

Is that not a basic question he would ask every day? How is contract tracing going?

Stephen Donnelly tells FF TDs that contact tracing 'didn't collapse', and that asking patients to contact trace is a 'one-off'

The twin towers didn't collapse either..it was a once off...what a fool

Muppet

FF tripe. The testing is shambolic as is housing OBrien another FF studge helping the homeless stay warm for 6 more weeks. We will end up testing ourselves shortly. Today the roads were busier than normal M1 M4 M50 so much for essential workers.

How is he still in a job. Hasn’t got a fucking clue what he’s doing

Lies. That doesn't even make sense.

Moving to Level 5 a 'pre-emptive strike' - Donnelly (31)

The Minister for Health has said today is day one of flattening the curve for a second time but that everyone understands the cost of moving to Level 5.

Cavan now has a Covid19 rate of 1,013 cases per 100,000 people. Asked what's gone wrong in the county, DonnellyStephen says movement across the border may be a factor. He says there is evidence of post-match celebrations spreading the virus too. |

DonnellyStephen morningireland fuck me- what a stupid thing to say first day of a six week lockdown.

DonnellyStephen morningireland The supermarket chains have been quietly ramping up preparations for winter since mid summer. So why has it not been possible for the HSELive to ramp up tracing capacity over the summer to deal with the expected rise in those presenting for tests.

DonnellyStephen morningireland Nothing to report here! Now where have we heard that before in relation to HSE? Cervicalcheck? And... And... And...

DonnellyStephen morningireland So basically he hasn't a clue and there isn't really a plan.

Schools should not reopen after midterm unless safety improves, say unions (18)

Minister promises new teams to assist schools when Covid-19 cases are identified

Schools should not reopen after midterm break unless safety improves, say unions

Exactly what additional safety measures are needed? I haven’t heard the unions offer any solutions or suggestions for improvement. Closing our schools should not be an option

Have the teachers unions woken up? Things must be serious.

so here it is there will be a extended mid term as the teachers unions will kick up and the government will just shrug its shoulders as usual

Daughter is being sent home this mid term with all school books as a “precaution” sounds ominous.

Piss off lads

How perfect storm of patient privacy, long phone calls and recruitment issues is causing our contact tracing system to fail (17)

Contact tracing is a mess, and the powers that be have known about it for months.

Individual calls are taking three and four times as long as they should, because the traced are arguing with their HSE trackers.

HSE masters at the art of deflection... We didn't do our job so it's YOU who is at fault... Should we be surprised after decades of mismanagement?

Oh would you look, its the ordinary people's fault again. The free state and their media lackeys gas lighting ordinary people. No one should forget the hse and the free states horrendous record in healthcare, why would it change now



At this stage what close contacts as they should be not seeing anyone close🤔

This is called deflection. Blame the normal Joe Soap again. The whole tracing system has been inept from the start. Government are to blame and nobody else on the end of a phone call. This beautiful country has gone to shite. Shame on the people that are dragging it down.

The survey, carried out amid a recent surge in Covid-19 cases, highlights concern among the profession.

92% of post-primary teachers say wearing masks makes work more difficult - TUI survey

No kidding

Would the same 92% express a preference for (1) being infected with Covid19 or (2) being responsible for infecting one of their pupils?

Of course. You don't know who you're talking to half the time, you can't heard what they're saying and the poor kiddies are miserable. Well done LeoVaradkar MichealMartinTD CMOIreland

Ah blow me! Most of the year off with full pay.

Not to mention health hazards.

Co Cavan's virus incidence rate is 'scary', says GP (16)

There were 772 positive cases in Co Cavan in the last two weeks, leaving an incidence rate of 1,013.4.

There were 772 positive cases in Co Cavan in the last 14 days, leaving an incidence rate per 100,000 population of 1,013.4.

Can we have the figures for how many of these cases (and these cases only) have been hospitalised with Covid 19, and how many of these cases have died. That will help us understand better the significance of the problem. Also same numbers for flu and compare with same period 2019

How many went to hospital?

Ha ha what's the population of Cavan

why is Cavan different to other parts of the country?

Sweden and Germany at less than 100 cases per 100k. Ireland is at 270. Spain at 350 and Belgium near 1000, yet guess what? Ireland is the only one in a 2nd lockdown. How do we get it so wrong all the time? Ans- put idiots who ran the heath service for years in charge.
