"Since then, there have been 10 million cases and 500,000 deaths reported worldwide.

"We know more about this virus and how to limit its spread than we did six months ago.

"It is very important that we keep up the national effort to reduce the impact of this disease in our country."

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn added: "Each person should risk assess their own environment to inform their personal decisions and actions during this pandemic.

"We know how this virus spreads, we know the public health behaviours required to protect ourselves and others, we must continue to be aware of the disease and limit its spread."
