The head of the Department of Health is expected to warn the Covid 19 crisis could be here for some years.

He’s among the country’s senior health officials appearing before a new coronavirus Oireachtas Committee this morning,  to answer questions over their handling of the crisis.

1,547 people have so far lost their lives from the virus, while there have been 24,200 confirmed cases.

Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tony Holohan will also be appearing at the committee.

Former HSE chief Tony O’Brien has raised social distancing concerns over the country's top health officials appearing at a lengthy Dáil committee today.

But Dr. Holohan says he wouldn't attend if he didn't feel the meeting was safe.
