A top public health doctor says he's worried about the risk of importing new cases of COVID-19 to the island of Ireland from Great Britain.

Dr. Gabriel Scally says any plan to lift lockdown here any earlier depends on the number of new cases emerging staying low.

Two more people infected with COVID-19 were reported to have died yesterday, and 66 more people have tested positive for the virus.

But Dr. Scally says many parts of the country are on the right track. He says he's pleased to see there are six counties where there were no new cases last week.

However, he says any change in the easing of restrictions is based on the number of new cases in the next week or so and that Ireland also avoids importing new cases.
