A Dublin nursing home has had eleven Covid-19 related deaths within the last two weeks.
The HSE has confirmed that ten of those who passed away at St Mary’s Hospital in the Phoenix Park had tested positive for the virus.
While another resident was a suspected case but hadn't received their test results.
Nursing Homes Ireland is to meet with the Health Minister this afternoon amid criticism that the issue in nursing homes wasn't prioritised.
The HSE says every effort continues to be implemented to maintain the professional standard of nursing and health care assistant staffing in St Mary’s Hospital during this time.
It says the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff is a priority and has offered its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased.
