Third Wave Of Coronavirus Here, Blamed On Lifting Restrictions At Christmas

The recent surge in Covid deaths is being directly linked to restrictions being lifted before Christmas.

101 deaths, the highest in one day here, were confirmed yesterday, one of those just 19-years-old.
However, the number of new cases was the lowest since December 28th at 879.
The chief medical officer, Tony Holohan, says we have a long way to go to bring the virus under control.
Professor Gabriel Scally says this third wave was avoidable.
