"We're Close To The End" - Immunologist Says End In Sight Of Pandemic


Ireland is getting very close to the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a leading immunologist.

There was a note of optimism at the latest NPHET press conference due to the strong progress in the vaccine programme.

There were 1,408 new cases confirmed yesterday, with 9 deaths confirmed over the last week.

Professor of Immunology at Maynooth University, Paul Moynagh, says the virus could be changing course.

He says Ireland could be shifting from a pandemic to an endemic, where the virus exists "in the background".

Prof Moynagh says most people will not get very ill from Covid, thanks to vaccines and previous infection.
