Immunology expert says there’s no sense in delaying reopening
An immunology expert says there’s no sense in the Government delaying the easing of restrictions any longer.
Senior ministers and health officials are to meet later to draw up a roadmap to ending the country’s remaining Covid-19 restrictions.
The plan, which is expected to include information on the reopening of events and nightclubs, won’t be signed off by Cabinet until later this month.
Professor of Immunology at Maynooth University Paul Moynagh there’s no sense in delaying reopening as the vaccine take-up in Ireland is so high.
“We’re getting close to as good as we’re going to get.
“I don’t see the reason in terms of continuously delaying things.
“I think we’re at a stage now, in certain sectors, in sectors that need help and need support, and need to be begin to be opened up, it probably should have taken place earlier, and I think we need to look at that.”
