Covid-19 Cases Could Double In The Coming Day

There is a "strong likelihood" the number of new Covid-19 infections could double in the next few days, according to the head of the HSE.

A record 1,718 new cases were detected yesterday as the government announced a new month-long lockdown which will see all non-essential retail stores close later today.

491 people with the disease are in Irish hospitals this morning - a figure which has almost doubled in the past week.
