Ireland has passed the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic this year, according to the Deputy Chief Medical Officer.

Dr Ronan Glynn says he's hopeful people won't have to go through again what happened in January.
NPHET's reporting "steady progress" against all indicators of the disease, with the latest figures showing 829 new cases and 6 deaths.
Meanwhile the numbers in public hospitals are down around 46 per cent from its peak last month to 1,100, while 175 patients are in ICU.
