A 68-bed field hospital has been opened at the University of Limerick to cater for non-COVID 19 patients, including those who may have recovered from the virus.

The Interim Care Facility has been opened as part of measures to free up acute hospital bed capacity in the MidWest region.

It’s expected the first 25-30 patients will be accommodated throughout this week.


Colette Cowan and Dr. Catherine Peters of the UL Hospitals Group discussed this, and the hospital group’s general response to COVID-19, on Tuesday’s programme
