NI Health Minister asks for joint approach to monitor international travellers

The Northern Ireland Health Minister wants more cooperation between the Executive and the Irish Government in tracing international travellers to the island.

Robin Swann has written to Stephen Donnelly saying there are issues with the system in monitoring people who cross the border after arriving from an at-risk country.

He said the only "logical solution" is to get travellers into the island of Ireland to give data to authorities that is available to officials in both jurisdictions.
