Concern over virus clusters at direct provision centres

The Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland (MASI) and the Irish Refugee Council have again raised concerns about residents of direct provision centres sharing living spaces, following reports of more than two dozen cases of Covid-19 at one centre linked to a cluster at a Kildare factory.

MASI is reporting that there have been 31 cases of coronavirus at the Eyre Powell Centre in Newbridge. The Department of Justice has not confirmed this figure.
