The Chief Medical Officer says there are encouraging signs the country will be in a position to start easing the lockdown next week.

Phase one of the government's plan is due to begin on Monday, which includes the resumption of outdoor work and the reopening of some retail stores.

It comes as new figures show there are 23,242 confirmed cases of the virus, while 1,488 people have died.

Meanwhile, shoppers and people on public transport will be asked to wear homemade masks later this week.

According to the Irish Independent, the government will issue the advice after consultation with health chiefs.
