Ain’t Nobody’s Hands Clean


This afternoon.

The Dáil.

Further to the recall of ViraPro hand sanitiser (above), which was approved for use in many schools in Ireland…

…via RTÉ:

Sinn Féin’s Agriculture Spokesperson Matt Carthy said Minister for Agriculture Charlie McConalogue needs to explain why it took until late last night to make public a recall which had been put in place since Tuesday.

Mr Carthy said the minister needed to tell the house when the Taoiseach, Tánaiste and Minister for Health were informed about what he said was “this latest debacle coming down the track“.

Several schools all over the country closed as a result of the call.

The Department of Education said last night schools could close if they could not secure an alternative source of hand sanitiser.

The Department said funds would be made available to schools that needed to buy additional products as a result of the recall.

    …someday this pandemic will pass and the history will be written with the wonderful benefit of hindsight…the Ireland chapter may not be the biggest but I believe we have made some significant contributions to the knowledge that will eventually defeat the virus…the sanitizer debacle shows that nothing is black and white…I really believe that sanitizers provide more of a placebo than protection…anyone who has worked in an area where hygiene is essential, from surgeon to kitchen porter would never substitute hand washing for sanitizer…

    …they will have made some people a lot of money…

      Doesn’t it kill bacteria instead of viruses anyway ? My understanding is that only washing your hands is effective, doesn’t this stuff just give a false sense of security ?
