50,000 Contact HSE To Help With Coronavirus Outbreak

30 thousand people have contacted the HSE in the past 24 hours, responding to the governments call for help.

The Health Minister is describing it as a amazing national effort.

Wicklow TD Simon Harris is hoping more people will sign up to HSE.ie/oncall to see if they can help.

People looking to be tested for covid-19 have been flooding GP out-of-hours centres and the 999 emergency line today with a "high volume" of calls.

GPs can refer patients for a test for Covid-19 using a new online system.

People are being reminded they should only contact their doctor by phone if they have symptoms.
