More Restrictions Could Be Imposed In Certain Regions

Last night 204 new cases of coronavirus were announced, along with one death, bringing the total fatalities to seven.

Dublin has over half the number of cases, followed by Cork with 13 per cent.

Chief medical officer Tony Holohan isn't ruling out introducing more stringent measures for specific regions.

New financial supports for businesses will bring some much-needed confidence to the sector, according to the Small Firms Association.

Last night, the government upgraded payments to workers who've lost their job due to Covid-19 to 350 euro a week.

It also committed to temporarily pay 70 per cent of workers salaries up to 410 euro a week.
