Covid-19 test centre needed in Inishowen – Doherty

There are calls for a Covid-19 testing centre to be located  in Inishowen as a matter of urgency.

Cllr Albert Doherty, the Cathaoirleach of the Inishowen Municipal District, says there is particular concern in at the increase in the number of cases reported on the peninsula .

Last week, 59 cases were reported in North Inishowen ; two weeks earlier, the figure was less than five. 54 cases were reported in South Inishowen, two weeks earlier, the figure was 13.

Cllr Albert Doherty says travelling to Letterkenny for testing can be a three hour round trip for some people in North Inishowen, and that's an unacceptable and unfair situation.............
