The acting Chief Medical Officer's warning that Covid-19 is spreading 'disproportionately' among younger people.

It's after new figures from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre show 40% of cases in the last two months have been in people between 15 and 34.

Another 334 cases of the virus were reported across the country yesterday.

The National Public Health Emergency Team will consider whether to recommend further restrictions at a meeting tomorrow.

Up to eight counties are in danger of being moved up to level 3, which Dublin is at.

Professor in infectious diseases at the Royal College of Surgeons, Sam McConkey, says level 5 may be needed in the coming weeks.
