CMO Says Staying In Is Key To Stopping Spread of Covid
While commenting on today's figures, CMO Dr Tony Holohan stressed the importance of self isolation.
"It is vitally important that if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 that you self isolate and phone your GP for further advice."
He said that only by staying home and staying in your room can you avoid making contact with other household members.
"I again appeal to everyone to behave as though you are a close contact. Stay at home, other than for essential reasons," he concluded.
Earlier, the HSE are noting a positive theme emerging, one week since Level 5 restrictions kicked in,
The HSE's Chief Clinical Officer Colm Henry says there's no room for complacency.
He said: "It should be a message to us all to stay the course because these measures are starting to take affect."
