Health Minister Says It's Unlikely There Will Any Real Change To Existing Restrictions On May 5th

Coronavirus restrictions may not be lifted at all next week, or only slightly eased.

According to the Irish Independent, it's because of 'serious concern' at the number of new cases being recorded.
Yesterday the Department of Health announced 26 more Covid-19 patients had died and 701 more people had tested positive.
Health Minister Simon Harris says we can't expect a major let-up in the restrictions on May 5th.
