Those seeking a website for Nphet, or the National Public Health Emergency Team, will be automatically redirected to the pages of the Government party website if they access the .ie domain.

Redirection on a website automatically moves visitors to a different web page than the one originally requested.

Nphet, the body of medical and health service experts advising the Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, has no website of its own and publishes all content on gov.ie/health.

A spokesperson for Fianna Fáil said that the party was not responsible for the website redirect.

They added that the party had no knowledge of the website redirect until they received a query from Breakingnews.ie.

Fianna Fáil confirmed it had not acquired the domain Nphet.ie.

In response to a query from Breakingnews.ie, the Department of Health said: “Nphet.ie is not a URL associated with Nphet or the Department of Health.

“The National Public Health Emergency Team publishes all content on gov.ie/health.”
