The Government will continue to consider possible travel restrictions with Britain amid fears surrounding the Delta variant.

It's said the strain, which first originated in India is making up around 90 per cent of new Covid-19 cases in the UK.

It was revealed in the latest check that we have around 126 cases of the Delta variant here.

Ministers here are considering extending the quarantine period for unvaccinated passengers from Britain.

They currently have to quarantine at home but can leave after 5 days with a second negative PCR test.

UCC Professor and co-founder of I-SAG which advocates for Zero Covid, Gerry Kileen, says mandatory hotel quarantine for people travelling from Britain needs to be seriously considered.
