Almost €5 Million Allocated To Covid Research

4.8 million euro in funding is being provided for Covid 19 research to find out why some people get the infection more easily.

The Higher Education Minister Simon Harris has announced the investment, which will try to find effective vaccines for the disease.
It'll be funded by Science Foundation Ireland, led by Professors Kingston Mills, Luke O'Neill and Aideen Long of Trinity College.
Minister Harris says along with finding out who's immune from the virus, the funding will look into rapid antibody testing
