Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has said the majority of the Irish population are comfortable with the speed of the reopening set by the Government.
Donnelly said the latest research showed that about 60% of the population were comfortable with the pace of reopening.
He said 20% wanted to reopen slower and 20% wanted to reopen faster.
The Minister went on to say that the sectors who have been most effected have been “very loud”, but behind those sectors he claimed the majority of people are comfortable with the pace of reopening.
The Covid-19 sub-committee met yesterday to establish a roadmap out of restrictions imposed due to Covid-19.
The committee formulated a proposal that would see the vast majority of restrictions ending by October 22nd.
This will be contingent on the incidence rate of the virus remaining stable and 90% of all adults being vaccinated.
Cabinet are meeting today to finalise plans for reopening, and the Taoiseach will address the nation this evening detailing the revised roadmap.
