Two thirds of adult population now fully vaccinated
Two thirds of the adult population are now fully vaccinated against Covid 19 while 80% are partially vaccinated.
The head of the HSE is warning the Delta variant remains a huge risk to the progress but believes the public can meet it head-on.
The five-day moving average of Covid-19 cases has increased by over 300 per cent over the past month.
Professor of Immunovirology at UCC, Liam Fanning, believes things will calm down in a few weeks.
“We have to keep a watching brief on this virus, but nonetheless we have done extraordinarily well in this country.
“In two or three weeks I expect to see these numbers starting to decrease.
“Covid has made us all a hostage to fortune when it comes to making timeline projections, but sometime in August we will definitely be on top of this as a result of our successful vaccination programme.”
