Covid-19 is a public health emergency. It will not recognise borders. We need a plan for all of Ireland, North and South, and taking into account those who live on the border.
Why is this important?
The Coronavirus is beyond politics. Now is the time for all who live on this island, to stand together to face this common threat. An emergency plan must be put in place to protect us all, and prioritising those most at risk such as care home residents, asylum seekers, older people, and the homeless.
