Ireland ‘on right track’ in suppressing Covid-19 – Dr. Tony Holohan

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has said progress is being made in terms of suppressing Covid-19 in Ireland.

Holohan said the country is “on the right track” in suppressing the virus in society, but warned it was too early to ease efforts.

Yesterday, 416 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed in Ireland, the lowest daily figure since October 4th.

Although the incidence rate is decreasing in younger people, it is continuing to rise with those over-75, who are most at risk.
