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.”
