HSE Says It'll Be Awhile Before Herd Immunity To Covid 19 Seen Here

HSE Chief Clinical Officer Dr Colm Henry says people can't drop their guard:

The HSE says it'll be "some time" before there's herd immunity to Covid 19 here, despite the development of vaccines.

The government's taskforce is due to complete its report tomorrow on how a vaccine would be rolled out when it becomes available.

The head of the European Medicines Agency has warned today that there's no guarantee of "positive news" at the end of this month on the approval of Pfizer's jab.
