He posted on Twitter, noting that there are currently 556 patients in Irish hospitals with Covid-19, with 95 people in ICU.

“The virus is now prolific in most communities and nobody wants to be the next hospitalised case,” he said.

“An immediate reduction by all of us of risk activities is needed to turn this around.”
