Figures Show Early Signs Of Progress - CMO
Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan says the the figures show early signs of progress but there's still a "long, long way to go".
"In the coming weeks ahead, we will need to draw upon our reserves of resilience from springtime as we can expect to see hospitalisations, admissions to ICU and mortality related to Covid-19 increase day on day."
“The best way that we can all support one another now is to stay apart. Sadly, what we are seeing now is a result of the very high daily confirmed case numbers we experienced for successive weeks."@CMOIreland

Dr Holohan also reminded people not to ignore worrying signs besides Covid-19 symptoms.
"Phone your GP if you have any concerns, not just those related to Covid-19," he concluded.
