Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

John Lahart: Deputy Madigan has a minute and a half left.

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Josepha Madigan: I want to acknowledge the incredible response of the staff of our public service across Departments and agencies, particularly in the health sector, but also in social welfare and other sectors. These front-line staff have stayed in their posts and have gone above and beyond what we could reasonably expect of them in making sure our public services can function to the greatest extent...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

John Lahart: The Minister for Health departed the Chamber to attend a briefing of all party and group leaders on Covid-19. The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht will conclude the debate for the Government.

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Josepha Madigan: I appreciate the Acting Chairman's explanation. I thank the Deputies for their contributions. However, the Members here today who have insisted on this Dáil sitting have shown a complete disregard for our national fight to contain Covid-19. Shame on you. They have forced us to stray from home rather than stay at home, which is completely contrary to public health guidelines and...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Marian Harkin: I am truly sorry for all those families who have lost loved ones due to Covid-19. I know all Deputies share that sentiment. I send our best wishes to those who are ill right now. As many Deputies have said, it is great to see Dr. Tony Holohan back at his desk. It gives us confidence. I am annoyed by an earlier comment. This is not a Chinese virus. It is a virus. A virus knows no...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Thomas Pringle: I would like to share time with Deputy Harkin.

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

John Lahart: Is that agreed? Agreed.

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Thomas Pringle: I begin by extending my condolences to the families of the people who have passed away from the coronavirus over the last while. It is important that we should extend our sympathy to them. We should not forget those who have passed away under normal circumstances because it is not normal for their families to have to make funeral arrangements like those we have seen in recent weeks. It is...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Danny Healy-Rae: I, too, sympathise with all those who have lost family members over the past three or four weeks, for whatever reason. It has been a very difficult time for them because nobody can assist them, grieve with them or go to funerals. I knew a 91 year old man who, when he knew he was dying, said to his son, "Goddamit, there will be no neighbour or anyone coming to the funeral." The son is...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Michael Healy-Rae: I, too, would like to say how important it is for us to acknowledge the sadness and heartache endured by families throughout the country who have lost friends and relatives over the past number of days and weeks. We are so sorry for that. Our thoughts, prayers and consideration are with people who are ill, either at home or in our hospitals. It is right and proper for us to be here...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Verona Murphy: I give my best wishes to Dr. Tony Holohan for his own health and all those who suffer from the coronavirus. I pay my condolences to those who have passed away as a result of the virus. I pay tribute to the front-line staff in hospitals and throughout our medical services as well as to those front-line staff who are not so recognisable in our pharmacies, supermarkets, at checkouts and those...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Matt Shanahan: I am sharing time with Deputy Verona Murphy. I would also like to express our sincere condolences with the families that have been bereaved as a result of Covid-19 and I express our solidarity with people who are attending hospital. Public representatives have both a duty and a responsibility to represent the needs of constituents when national policy is being discussed. On the...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Mick Barry: I wish to start by expressing sympathy for all those who are sick and offering deep condolences to all those who have lost loved ones in recent weeks. On the Order of Business, during a national emergency the accountability of Government is more important than in normal times. Allowing the voice and concerns of constituents to be heard is more important during a national emergency than in...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Richard Boyd Barrett: On behalf of People Before Profit, I pass on my deepest sympathies and condolences to anybody who has lost a loved one, whether in this country or elsewhere. We have to do absolutely everything we can to minimise further tragedies of that sort as quickly as possible. I also want to pay tribute to health workers and other essential workers who are providing the services and protection we...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Catherine Murphy: I, too, would like to express my sympathies and the sympathies of the Social Democrats to those who have died during this Covid-19 pandemic in our health system. There is one particular time when people want to be around somebody close to them and that is when the person is dying. I know from my own experience of having been with my both parents when they died that there is something very...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Patrick Costello: While I agree that all our health employees are on the front line, there are some who are more visible and of whom we think more quickly. My thoughts turn to those who are often less visible but deserve support in protecting their health so we can keep their services running. One thing that comes to mind is the child protection services, which are under unique pressures at this point as...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Malcolm Noonan: I join other Deputies in offering condolences to all the bereaved families and giving our full support to front-line workers. I will speak to a couple of other matters that may not have been addressed. As the emergency rolls on and people live the pattern of the new normal, we are aware that despite the creativity and humour engendered by social distancing, this pandemic has the...

Health (Covid-19): Statements (2 Apr 2020)

Louise O'Reilly: I will try to be as brief as I can. I offer my sincere heartfelt condolences to any person who has been bereaved as a result of this virus. I wish a fast and full recovery to those who are ill with the virus at home or in hospital. I would like to ask a number of questions about the situation as it stands, particularly on behalf of medical professionals and the medical and scientific...
