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.
