Meanwhile, Dr Ronan Glynn told the Oireachtas Health Committee earlier today that there has been no new outbreaks of Covid-19 in nursing homes in the last week

This is the first week since July 2020 that there have been no new outbreaks in these settings, the acting chief medical officer said.

Dr Glynn said Ireland’s achievements in suppressing the virus while keeping schools open shouldn’t be underestimated as many countries in Europe have schools closed while their healthcare systems are under severe pressure.

“We have more reasons to be hopeful than at any time to date during the pandemic,” he said.
