369 Die From COVID In Nursing Home Settings In January

More than 1,500 people have died in nursing home settings since the start of the pandemic.

TDs have been told a critical window was missed by not vaccinating all nursing home residents immediately after the vaccine became available.

Nursing Homes Ireland has told an Oireachtas committee just 10 per cent of the first 77,000 vaccinations were given to nursing home residents and staff.

That's despite them being top of the priority list just ahead of healthcare workers.
