HSE Wants Powers To Quarantine Patients With Suspected Coronavirus.

: 02/13/2020 - 17:43

The HSE has requested that it be able to force suspected coronavirus patients into quarantine.

The power would be used in cases where patients were refusing to comply.

Similar powers exist for other diseases such as smallpox and TB.

There has been no cases of the virus in Ireland yet, although there has been at least 65 suspected cases.

The HSE's Dr. Kevin Kelleher says they've requested the power as a precaution.
