The number of people with confirmed cases of Covid 19, who have died at Mayo University Hospital and other HSE facilities across county Mayo since the start of the pandemic are figures sought for many weeks now by the Cathaoirleach of Castlebar Municipal District Michael Kilcoyne from the HSE West management.
However, to date he has been unable to get these details.
He will raise the question again this afternoon at the HSE West Forum meeting in Merlin Park Galway. The meeting is being held virtually due to Covid 19 restrictions.
In addition the Cathaoirleach has submitted a written question to the Forum asking for details on the numbers of tests conducted, over the past month, for Covid 19 at Mayo University Hospital and other test centres in the county and their results.
The independent councillor spoke to Midwest News this lunchtime about why he is pursuing the matter and is also calling on the HSE to test anyone who wants a Covid 19 test, even if they are not displaying symptoms of the virus, in an effort to seriously eradicate the virus in the county and country.
