Asylum seekers working in nursing homes despite coronavirus in their direct provision centres

Asylum-seekers are going to work in nursing homes even though there is coronavirus in their direct-provision centres.

That’s according to the Movement of Asylum-Seekers in Ireland.

There are currently 50 clusters of the virus in nursing homes across the country, which means 3 or more people in a setting have contracted the infection.

Spokesman Bulelani Mfaco claims there are Covid-19 cases in several direct-provision centres.

“We’ve already had cases of Covid-19 in direct provision centres.

“And in those very same direct provision centres there are people who go to work in healthcare or in nursing homes.

“It’s a very difficult situation for those people.”
