Former Tanaiste and attorney general Michael ­McDowell has lashed out against the latest COVID safety measures in Dublin, claiming they are not ‘scientifically justified’.

Senator McDowell made his comments on the day the acting Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn warned that more than half of the cases in the country are in Dublin.

There were an additional 253 confirmed Covid-19 cases yesterday, and as many as 116 were in Dublin.a man wearing a suit and tie: Former Tanaiste and attorney general Michael ­McDowell has lashed out against the latest COVID safety measures in Dublin, claiming they are not ‘scientifically justified’.

Former Tanaiste and attorney general

Michael ­McDowell has lashed out against the latest COVID safety measures in Dublin, claiming they are not ‘scientifically justified’.

The senator said the new guidelines are ‘cruel, wasteful and extremely damaging to our economy’, and added that NPHET ‘does not deserve our respect’.

The former justice minister called on fellow senators to demand the regulations be debated.

I have no confidence in the HSE because for three years, from 2016 to 2019, report after report said to increase intensive care unit provision, as it is under-provided for, and nothing was done about this. Practically nothing was done,’ he said.

When this situation arose again in March, we heard, at the COVID committee, that sanction has been given for an increase in ICU capacity. That is the politics and the administration of paralysis.’

He said: ‘I have no confidence in NPHET for this very simple reason: the difference in treatment of meat plants and restaurants, between it and the HSE, is dramatic and inexplicable.

‘Closing down restaurants on this day in this capital will condemn vast swathes of vulnerable, underpaid people to go home to their bedsits, or wherever they are, and spend weeks alone in those premises without proper wages.’

Senator McDowell said the new decision that will see Dublin cut off from the rest of the country ‘has not been scientifically justified’.

‘It is wrong. It flies in the face of the strategy announced two weeks ago by Government that it was going to open these places again. It flies in the face of science. It is wrong.’
