Restaurant Association Seeks Tough Lockdown Here, As Similar Measures Are Considered For Derry

The Restaurant's Association want a 'circuit breaker' lockdown to save the industry's Christmas.

The Tanaiste Leo Varadkar had described the idea of a short shutdown as experimental last week, however yesterday said it may be needed.
Meanwhile, Taoiseach Micheal Martin has said a second lockdown may not be short.
The Restaurant's Association says 30 percent of the sector's income is brought in during Christmas, and believes if they're not allowed open many will not survive.

meanwhile The Derry-Strabane area has the highest fortnightly case rate anywhere on the island.
However, a "circuit breaker" restriction could be about to be imposed there in the coming days.
Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew says public health restrictions need to be similar north and south of the border -- and doctors need to share their data.
