Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr. Tony Holohan has said Ireland faces further restrictions if Covid-19 numbers do not improve.
He claimed the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) will be “forced to give difficult advice” to Government if case numbers don’t improve.
He said NPHET will monitor the situation closely this week and that it is important to see signs of improvement.
“If we think it is necessary to give difficult advice, then we will do so,” he said.
Holohan said people should isolate and book a PCR test immediately if they experience any symptoms of Covid-19.
