Louise O’Reilly TD calls for a dedicated daily television and radio update on Covid-19

Sinn Féin health spokesperson Deputy Louise O’Reilly has called for a dedicated daily update on the situation as regards Covid-19 to be broadcast on television and radio every evening at six o’clock to update the public and combat misinformation. 

Speaking this afternoon, Teachta O’Reilly said:

“These are extraordinary times and every person in the State needs to do their civic duty to help as best they can to combat the spread of Covid-19.

 “Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation circulating as regards what the situation is and that needs to be countered.

“I would call on the caretaker government to look at broadcasting a daily update on the situation as regards Covid-19 across television and radio channels every evening at six o’clock.

“This would help combat misinformation, keep people informed, and allow people to understand where we are in the current crisis.

“A number of other States are looking at taking similar action and I feel it would be a welcome and positive development for people here.”
