NPHET Says New Virus Case Numbers Likely To Remain High For Some Time

The deputy Chief Medical Officer says it will be a 'challenge' to get below 500 Covid cases per day.

Tanaiste Leo Varadkar said yesterday it will be very hard to see numbers going below this level because of the more transmissible UK variant.
It comes as 606 new cases have been confirmed, with 3 more deaths.
Dr Ronan Glynn says he agrees getting case numbers below 500 will be difficult.
