Testing For Coronavirus Increases After Widening Of Criteria

More than 61,000 Covid-19 tests have been carried out in the past week, with 2,200 returning a positive result.

The total number of tests carried out is now close to 215,000.
The testing criteria have been broadened so that people will no longer need to be in an at-risk group to be eligible.
Dr Cillian De Gascun, head of the Covid-19 Expert Advisory Group, says they are keeping a close eye on the demand for testing.
