Ireland's Chief Medical Officer Says Testing Criteria May Be Relaxed Soon

The Chief Medical Officer says the criteria for testing of Covid-19 will likely be relaxed next week.

It comes as the numbers presenting at test centres has fallen significantly in recent days.
Only those with underlying conditions and who're displaying symptoms are eligible for a test.

The death toll from the virus here has risen by 38 to 444, while total diagnosed cases now stands at 12,547.
Dr Tony Holohan says if there's to be any easing of restrictions, it's important the case definition is expanded so more people are tested
