The Taoiseach admits he doesn't know if the restrictions on movement will be able to be relaxed on May 5th.

Leo Varadkar made the comments before the Dail this afternoon.

He said if the restrictions can be relaxed, it "will be gradual and will happen over a number of months".

The Taoiseach has also warned that "Only a scientific breakthrough - a vaccine or an effective anti-viral medicine will truly allow life to go back to being as it was".

Leo Varadkar also offered his condolences to the families and friends of the 444 people who have died as a consequence of coronavirus in Ireland to date.
