THE CSIF Sanidad union called on the Axarquia Health Area management to investigate a consignment of out-of-date surgical masks.

The union, which represents public sector health workers, said that it had accessed a General Services Sub-directorate document revealing that 250,000 surgical masks received in 2015 during the Ebola crisis have been used since then.

These included Confort Cover masks whose expiry date was August 2014, and CSIF has asked the Health Area management – who maintained that they were withdrawn three weeks ago – to investigate what happened to them.

The union stressed the importance of an investigation, stating that it would send a message of reassurance to worried health professionals.
