There has been over 44,000 cases of Covid-19 reported in the previous two weeks in Ireland.
Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr. Tony Holohan said: “The volume of disease in the community is really very high and represents a significant risk to those who are most vulnerable in our society.”
“We have reported over 44,000 cases in the past 14 days.”
“We need to continue to use all of the tools available to us to protect ourselves and others. By layering all of the public health measures with which we are now so familiar, we can help to break the chains of transmission,” Holohan continued.
