The Taoiseach has explained how a decision on lifting Coronavirus restrictions will be made and warned that the country is not yet out of danger.
Leo Varadkar set out the criteria the government will look at which includes the progress of the disease, the status of testing and contact tracing, and the impact on vulnerable groups.
He said tomorrow a phased plan will be outlined with measures easing every two to four weeks.
Leo Varadkar says he knows the lockdown is difficult but people must stay the course. The ease of current restrictions will be slow and gradual and a plan is being put in place for what Ireland will look like post-COVID

Leo Varadkar told the Dáil this afternoon that there is still a long way to go before things can return to normal.
Any easing of restrictions to be announced tomorrow is expected to be very minimal.
