: 22/10/2020 - 15:20

The Head of the HSE says it was the right decision to ask some covid-19 patients to do their own contact tracing.

Around 2,500 people that tested positive over the weekend have been asked to let their close contacts know.

The HSE says it was a temporary measure in response to a high volume of positive cases.

HSE CEO Paul Reid says he takes responsibility for not informing Government.
