CMO Says Covid-19 Figures Are Hopeful But It's Still "Early Days"
Commenting on today's figures, CMO Dr Tony Holohan said while the overall situation has improved, it's still "early days".
"We have to remember that the incidence is increasing in older age groups, who are particularly vulnerable to the disease."
Dr Holohan says the entire population has to drive down transmission to protect vulnerable groups.
His Deputy Dr Desmond Hickey said the seven day incident rate has reduced by 36% in the last week.
"Ireland's progress is notable when compared to the rapidly deteriorating picture across Europe."
Meanwhile, Chief Clinical Officer, Dr Colm Henry welcomed the reduced number of patients in emergency departments.
"If you need urgent or emergency care in our hospitals, this care can be provided safely."
