Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has warned the Covid-19 situation will get worse before it gets better as Covid-19 cases and hospitalisations continue to rise.
Speaking before the Cabinet meeting this morning, Donnelly called for a “national effort” by the public to stick with health measures.
Ireland’s 14-day incidence rate is currently around 500 cases per 100,000 of the population.
Earlier today, Minister Eamon Ryan said he does not believe Covid-19 restrictions will be reintroduced in Ireland.
He said he believes this view is shared by all members of the Cabinet sub-committee on Covid-19 who attended last nights meeting, including Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr. Tony Holohan.
Ryan said personal and sectoral responsibility is key to manage the spread of the virus.
