Sadly, with a further 26 deaths reported here in the Irish Republic today (April 27th); according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), despite our welcome current downward trend in virus infections, it is expected that the Irish mainland will see yet another surge in Covid-19 infections, within the coming four to six week period.

Dr. David Nabarro the World Health Organisations special envoy on Covid-19, warns that hospitals in Ireland are likely to face quite a lot of illness yet again, as case numbers begin to trend upwards once more.
He further warned that we can expect new surges possibly every three months.
