Tánaiste believes Covid-19 pandemic will end in 2021

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said he believes the country will see the end of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021.

Varadkar said yesterday was a day of hope as people on the island of Ireland and in the UK began to receive a coronavirus vaccine.

He said the combination of vaccines, mass testing and increased knowledge of Covid-19 will work to bring an end to the virus next year.

The Government has advance purchase agreements to buy 8 million doses of vaccines for Ireland and the task force will outline an action plan, to include an information campaign, by Friday.
