In that case I will conclude by emphasising the importance of antigen testing and the importance of the HSE getting behind it, which was referenced by my colleague, Deputy Higgins, earlier. It is now policy. It is now in the public domain. It is now being used so we need our medical experts to bring the same level of expertise they brought to everything else in this pandemic and get behind antigen testing as well. As a final remark, others have described at length how it is very difficult to get an appointment for a PCR test in Dublin. We need to do considerable work to improve on that.
