Tallaght Hospital has moved to allay fears over the quality of some surgical masks at the facility.

A medic raised fears over the quality of surgical masks being used on the frontline while treating Covid-19 patients.

But the hospital has now stated the PPE is "adequate and quality approved".

A Tallaght Hospital spokeswoman said: "Tallaght University Hospital would like to clarify the ear-loop masks in use in our hospital are not the same as the masks referred to by the HSE clinicians recently as not being suitable.

"TUH has sourced ear-looped masks through its own supply chain from reputable Irish suppliers."
