Incidence Rate For Covid-19 Is Down But Figures Climb In County Wicklow

The chief medical officer insists there's no room for complacency, despite Ireland having the lowest 14-day incidence rate of Covid-19 in the EU.

The country reached that level after 270 new cases were reported yesterday, along with five deaths.

Of the new cases 58 are in Dublin, 38 in Donegal while 28 are in Wicklow, which is one of the biggest increase in county figures.

Dr Tony Holohan says it's important to keep up the progress we've achieved in recent weeks.

The National Public Health Emergency Team will meet this morning to discuss the spread of the virus, and plans to vaccinate the population in the new year.
