Government Told It's Moving Too fast In Lifting Restrictions

An expert is warning that repeatedly imposing and lifting Covid restrictions could be a dangerous gamble.

UCC Professor Gerry Kileen says he believes the government has moved forwarded too quickly with the planned phased lifting of restrictions.

There were no deaths in the latest figures here in the Republic, but there are 18 new confirmed cases.

Professor Kileen says the government should take the foot off the pedal when it comes to lifting restrictions
