Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan admitted to hospital for ‘non-coronavirus’ related tests
The reassuring voice of the Covid-19 crisis, Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has gone into hospital for non-coronavirus related treatment.
The man who has been reaching out to the Irish public and delivering information about the current emergency in very straight and empathetic manner is stepping back from the frontline for a couple of days while he undergoes treatment.
Dr Holohan told RTE just before lunchtime today that he was in hospital at the present time for tests unrelated to the virus.
Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn is to take the baton from Dr Holohan until he is released from hospital.
