With just 200 to 400 new cases of Covid-19 virus, expected to be confirmed per day, countrywide, by the end of February 2021; Professor Mr Philip Nolan (Chairperson of the NPHET’s Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group), believes it could be possible to begin a phased reopening of our education sector.

Total global cases up to 5.30pm this evening, are now standing at well over 102.7 million confirmed cases, with global deaths at well over 2.22 million.
