Chief Medical Officer: People returning from areas affected by coronavirus should 'self-isolate' if displaying symptoms
Dr Tony Holohan said that the HSE would be issuing guidelines about self-isolation.


CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER Dr Tony Holohan has told people to “self-isolate” if they return from a region affected by coronavirus and are displaying symptoms.

Speaking on RTÉ Radio One’s Morning Ireland programme this morning, Holohan said: “If you have come back from any of those regions in the last 14 days and experience flu-like symptoms such as a cough or shortness of breath, breathing difficulties or a fever – you should stay at home.”

“Make contact with your GP and be guided by your GP from there,” Holohan said.



So people are free to continue walking around, interacting and potentially spreading the virus?

Symptoms are said to not develop for up to two weeks, meanwhile, you can be spreading the virus all over.

Not to mention, what happens if someone does have symptoms and refuses to self isolate? They are still free to walk around the rest of us infecting more and more people.

The State solution seems to be ....let some other country worry about it. If it was up to me, flights would be suspended, etc

But what about everyone else on the plane with these people? Should they "self diagnose" and"self isolate" too.

This is keystone cops level public health preventative measures by Harris and the HSE.

We can expect many deaths at a 2% death rate and high contagion.

Shut down all flights to and from infected areas now. Profits do not trump public safety

What you will need to do
If you are well and have not been in contact with coronavirus, you will be told to watch out for symptoms over the next 14 days. You can continue with your daily life and go to work as usual.

If you have had close contact with a person who has coronavirus, you will be monitored for 14 days. A doctor will phone you daily to make sure you remain well. You will be asked to stay separate from other people as much as you can for 14 days. This includes not going to work.

Thing is...virus can be asymptomatic for longer than 14 days. They are treating 14 like a magic number.
Can these people even use google?

“Make contact with your GP” and make contact with every person you meet on the way. What type of gimps are running the show. Can someone please make it stop?

Not defending them or anything but theres an international army of logistics supplying this country with everything it needs. It littertly never stops moving.
From the jacket you have the car you drive the iPhone you use it all comes in from overseas

The nature of the global economy makes it impossible to contain this in any one country. The most that can be done is treat it when it becomes apprant and not panic people too much.

At church on Sunday and I started thinking,

The church has stopped handshakes because of Coronavirus.

However, the priest and his helpers were all putting their hands in the chalice to hand out communion.

Today people would be getting ash, the same hands or ash dabber touching multiple people's foreheads.

I think I may stop going to church for a while!

The Department of Health has said that Ireland remains in a containment phase in relation to the coronavirus.

Chief Medical Officer at the department Dr Tony Holohan said there have still been no confirmed cases here.

In a briefing, he said that one of the most important aspects would be the willingness of people to report if they have symptoms if they have returned from an at risk area.

He also said there were established international guidelines on mass gatherings developed around influenza.

Liam Woods, Health Service Executive National Director of Acute Operations, said there were isolation rooms in hospitals which are already used for a number of health matters.

He said the HSE had capacity for isolation rooms and would keep looking at it in relation to Covid-19.

Dr Cillian De Gascun, Director of the National Reference Laboratory at UCD, said it had the capacity to scale up testing if necessary.
