Earlier today, An Taoiseach Mr Leo Varadkar advised, “Our plan is working and we should stick to it. However we are still in the early stages, so it’s too early to evaluate how Phase 2 is going, but the early indications are favourable.”

He also warned that “We share an open border with Northern Ireland which has unrestricted travel with Great Britain. Closing ourselves off is not an option for Ireland in the medium to long-term. We need to be prepared for the risk of imported cases as we reopen slowly to other countries.”

Meanwhile today, Dr Dr David Nabarro of the World Health Organization, (WHO) has lauded Ireland’s response to the virus pandemic to date.

Stay safe.
