The Irish Naval Service has established ‘one-stop-shops’ to support COVID-19 testing in Dublin, Cork and Galway.
The vessels are acting as support bases for onshore testing centres – with COVID-19 testing staff supported by electricity supplies, accommodation, food preparation, water supplies and even equipment storage on the berthed vessels.
The vessels will act as floating resource bases for health officials. The deployment is part of the massive effort in Ireland to increase testing for the virus and to support contact-tracing.
