Looking at Things from the Left

Ireland Locks Down – Paul Murphy TD “Requisition Personal Protective Equipment For Health Staff Who Need It”

leave a comment »

Statement, Paul Murphy TD

All non-essential work finally being stopped. Construction sites, factories and call centres should now come to a halt, stopping workers and their families being placed in further danger. This has to be matched with requisitioning of Personal Protective Equipment to get it to our health staff who need it, and we need to take-over and direct production in factories to manufacturing PPE and ventilators. Public health before private profit!

Paul Murphy and Supporters, Campaigning Before Irish General Election February 8 2020

Taoiseach Varadkar announces :

stay at home in all circumstances, except in exceptional circumstances such as work and to get essential goods

He said that all public and private gatherings outside of a single household will be prohibited and all non-essential health services will be postponed. He also ordered that ‘Cocooning’ will be introduced for those over 70 years of age.

Mr Varadkar said that all public transport and passenger travel will be restricted to workers only or people providing essential services, and no travel outside 2km from people’s own homes .

All travel to offshore islands will be prohibited to residents of those islands, he said and he appealed to everyone to make these sacrifices not out of self-interest, but out of love for one another.
