Chief medical officer Dr Tony Holohan has been called on to appear before a Dáil committee to explain his opposition to the use of antigen testing.  A meeting of the Oireachtas Transport Committee yesterday heard from numerous experts advocating their use.  Is the NPHET stance on antigen testing too cautious? To discuss this further we were joined by Paul Moynagh Professor of Immunology and Director of the Kathleen Lonsdale Institute for Human Health research at Maynooth University and Gabriel Scally, Public Health Physician, Former Director of Public Health for Belfast, and Professor of Public Health at the University of Bristol.
