A member of NPHET says we're facing a difficult period over the next month and more Covid restrictions could be on the cards.

The seven-day average of new cases has risen by 66 per cent in the past fortnight, and now stands at 1,889.
The number of Covid patients in hospital stands at 437 and 86 are in ICU - the highest in seven months.
