“That’s not going to be the make or break issue here, the issue is a very highly transmissible variant. We’ve been slowest in Europe in terms of reopening society, I think wisely. We’ve been cautious.”

Martin went on to say that as the country continues to reopen, the people must remain cautious and very careful.

The Department of Health reported a further 1,173 cases of Covid-19 today in Ireland.

“The Delta variant is here, there will be an increase in case numbers, we’re watching very carefully the impact on hospitalisations and on ICUs,” an Taoiseach said.
