No extra restrictions are expected to be recommended at NPHET’s meeting on Thursday
That’s what the chief medical officer, Tony Holohan, told politicians at a briefing this afternoon.
It comes as the five-day moving average of Covid cases now stands at 4,712.
Sinn Féin’s health spokesman, David Cullinane, says Dr Holohan gave him a positive briefing today:
“Well, I think the focus on Thursday seems to be to evaluate those existing measures- How are they working? Are they working well?- as opposed to looking at any additional restrictions. So that’s a very hopeful message.”
