The EU Commissioner Fine Gael’s Phil Hogan said that he believes the people of Ireland are very reasonable and alluded to them seeing things from his perspective.
Speaking on RTE News, Hogan said that he had to undertake a medical procedure where he tested negative for Covid-19 and this should show that he was no risk to anyone.
“I didn’t put anyone at risk, because I had already been tested and was clear”
“I am satisfied arising from the test that I did that proved it was negative that I was no risk to anybody.”
“Because of the fact that I had a negative test. Because my medical people said I was no risk to anybody. I checked with the Citizens Information website which is funded by the HSE and I felt that I was no risk to anybody by going to Adare.
“I understand the perception. I was covered by the regulations that my work-related activities and under the regulation there is a reasonable excuse mechanism that allowed me the exemption to do that.”
“I was wrong, I made a mistake, I shouldn’t have gone”
