The Chief Medical Officer says a recent rise in the number of Covid-19 cases is a worrying development.

378 more infections were confirmed, and one further patient died.

The estimated national 14-day incidence rate of the disease is now at 127, which is at its lowest point since October 8th.

Dr Tony Holohan has warned people not to ignore public health messages about socialising after a video emerged over the weekend of large crowds on a Dublin street.

He says it’s a worrying development that the average five-day case count is rising and he’s also concerned about outbreaks linked to funerals.
