Today marks the third day since Covid-19 restrictions have eased slightly under the Government's roadmap to reopen the economy and society.

Speaking at the press briefing this evening Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health urged people not to become complacent about the threat of Covid-19.

"To date, 87% of confirmed cases diagnosed with Covid-19 have recovered. 

"This is very positive news but should not deflect from the impact this disease has had on individuals and families. 

"In addition, it does not change the risk for any one individual who is diagnosed with the disease today, or in the future," he said.

"Public health advice is there to provide everyone with the best protection possible. 

"Please follow it and continue to protect yourself and each other."

So far, there have now been 1,571 Covid-19 related deaths in Ireland.
