Dublin: INMO says that there is still a threat of COVID in Ireland’s hospitals and mandatory restrictions, including the wearing of masks, should continue.
The HSE has announced that restrictions on face masks for patients, staff, and visitors will be lifted on April 19. Following this, the general secretary of the organisation, Phil Ni Sheaghdha, came forward with a warning.
The INMO General Secretary stated that COVID has not left and that 19 patients are still fighting for their lives in the country’s ICU. The HSE has stated that patients are free to wear it if they so desire. This attitude will be harmful. The general secretary also stated that the environment in our hospital is to blame for the widespread spread of COVID.
Everyone will have an isolation system if the hospitals are clean and have single-room wards. It can also help prevent infection. However, this is not the case in Ireland’s hospitals. Wards, including emergency rooms, are overcrowded. Removing restrictions in such a situation would be harmful, the general secretary said.
