Tony Holohan Says He Doesn't Think He'll Be Recommending Any Lifting Of Restrictions

We'll get a clearer picture later on how rapidly Covid-19 is spreading across the country.

Crucial data from the State's expert modelling group is being released, which will show how many people are likely to be infected from one confirmed case.

It'll form a key part of deciding whether restrictions can be lifted next Tuesday, although the Chief Medical Officer has indicated he doesn't think he'll be recommending any lifting of measures to government.

31 more people with Covid-19 have died, bringing the death toll to 1,190, while we now have over 20,000 confirmed cases.

The World Health Organisation says adequate contact tracing and testing must be in place before any restrictions are lifted.

Contact tracing is taking approximately six days to complete, while the capacity for testing is at 10 thousand per day.
