655. To ask the Minister for Health the number of claims submitted to the State Claims Agency relating to Covid-19; the number of expected claims; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5642/20]
The State Claims Agency (SCA) has a statutory remit to manage personal injury claims, including claims in respect of clinical negligence, on behalf of Delegated State Authorities (DSA’s) including the Health Service Executive.
I have been informed by the SCA that it has not received any claims relating to COVID-19 to date and also that it is not possible to predict with any accuracy the number of claims that may be received in time.
