Simon Harris says he is "concerned" that complacency may prevent the government from proceeding with their Reopening Ireland Roadmap.

The Minister for Health joined Dermot & Dave this morning, where he spoke to the lads about how Ireland are prepared for the lifting of some Covid-19 restrictions on Monday May 18th. It comes as the Department of Health confirmed 15 more deaths from Covid-19 here, while over 23 thousands people have been diagnosed with the virus in Ireland.

But, Minister Harris says the despite the drop in the number of cases over the last number of days, people can't be getting complacent because clusters may pop up again, meaning Ireland could once again return to lockdown. The Health Minster has confirmed that he, the government and health officials are looking at other countries where restrictions have been lifted and are trying to avoid a further spike in case.

The Health Minister also wants to see new laws introduced to regulate people travelling into our ports and airports. It follows reports Gardai may call to passengers' homes to make sure they're in self-isolation for two weeks. It's after a third of people arriving at Dublin Airport recently, didn't fill in forms properly about where they were staying.
