He also stated that people with cold-like symptoms should stay in their homes, supporting the effort to avoid meeting other people and should contact their GP if they are in anyway concerned.

In Northern Ireland, another 992 cases of coronavirus were reported in the last 24 hours, down from 1,039 yesterday.
