However, Dr Glynn said the pandemic appears to be accelerating across Europe.
He said: "We have an opportunity to avoid a similar scenario here.
"We must take it by focusing once again on keeping our distance, washing our hands, wearing face coverings and continuing to make safe decisions that will protect ourselves, our friends, our families. No one is safe unless everyone is safe.”
