Taoiseach says everything is being done to fix HSE hack
The Taoiseach says it’s shocking that people’s lives have been disrupted so much by the HSE hackers.
He’s admitted there’s every possibility people’s private medical information will end up online but says they won’t be paying the ransom.
The Government says the best brains in the business are working on the hack, which is causing massive problems in the health sector.
Speaking on his way into Cabinet this morning, Micheál Martin says everything is being done to fix the problem.
“It’s shocking that people’s lives have been disrupted to this degree by these criminals, that’s the first point.
“Secondly we’re going to do everything we possibly can to restore service for people in this situation, particularly the most urgent services that people require.
“The HSE have been flat out since the weekend working first of all to respond to the threat, but also to rebuild and get services back.”
