Councillor calls for medical cards for those recovering from Covid

A Sligo councillor is calling for medical cards to be given to people recovering from Covid-19 and who have ongoing health issues.

However, the HSE says medical card eligibility is primarily based on an assessment of means and is not granted on the basis of any particular medical condition, except in limited cases.

Fine Gael Councillor Dara Mulvey, cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council, says we are really only learning abourt Covid-19 and its affects on people.
