The Taoiseach says he hopes to be able to announce the lifting of some of the Covid-19 restrictions by May 5th.
Leo Varadkar says a plan's being prepared that'll set out step-by-step how the economy and society will reopen.
He says the aim's to focus on areas with the most benefit to society but the least risk.
He says a plan's currently being drawn up on how to do that but will be dependent on the rate of the virus, hospital capacity and testing and contact tracing.
Speaking on RTE last night, the Taoiseach says the details are still being finalised:
.@LeoVaradkar on restrictions: "I'd love to be able to say to you that we're going to do x and y and not z, but the plan isn't agreed or finalised yet. I don't want to say we're going to do x and y now only to turn around in a few days time and tell you we're going to do y and z. pic.twitter.com/FO4scTsI49
