It has emerged that insurance companies are refusing mortgage cover to customers who have had COVID-19.

A number of people, including frontline workers, have contacted the Irish Independent saying they can't get mortgage protection insurance if they have or had the virus.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe says the government is engaging with the industry on the issue, and that insurance companies are expected to "treat their customers fairly, honestly and in accordance with the Central Bank's Consumer Protection Code".
