The Mater Hospital met legal requirements on Covid-19 reporting says Paul Reid

HSE CEO ‘Paul Reid’ has stated that he has been assured since an investigation was initiated into the delay of Covid-19 reporting that took place at the Mater Hospital that legal requirements were met.

Contact tracing in relation to the cases was completed.

Reid stated that at some stage during the process when the information was submitted to labs, some of the information “did not have the full details, particularly all the names of those cases”.

He added that this did not allow the HSE to “complete correlation of the data at the appropriate time”.

Chief Clinical Officer of the HSE ‘Colm Henry’ stated that it was “a data uploading issue”.

He added that there is no evidence that this happened anywhere else.
