Strong appeal to Irish public to avoid non-essential international travel to prevent second wave of Covid-19

Non-essential travel abroad should be avoided to help prevent another surge of Covid-19 in Ireland, Professor Philip Nolan has warned.

Nolan said that just because travel restrictions are easing doesn’t mean people should go abroad.

He also said about 12 (11%) of the 100 or so cases of the virus reported in Ireland in the last two weeks were travel-related.

He said this figure may seem small but should act as a warning as Ireland continues to ease restrictions.
