Meanwhile, In The Dáil


CEO of IBEC Danny McCoy

This morning from 11am.

The Special Committee on Covid-19 Response will meet and hold three sessions.

Between 11am and 1pm, Dr Cillian De Gascun, Director of the National Virus Reference Laboratory, and Professor Philip Nolan, president of the NUI Maynooth will go before the committee.

Between 2pm and 4pm, the CEO of IBEC Danny McCoy and CEO of ISME Neil McDonnell will address the politicians.

Mr McCoy is expected to call for the immediate removal of Covid-19 quarantine restrictions and the reduction of the two-metre social distancing guideline to one metre.

Between 4.30pm and 6.30pm, the CEO of Enterprise Ireland Julie Sinnamon and Secretary General of DBEI Dr Orlaigh Quinn will go before the committee.

Today’s appearances before the committee follow more than 1,000 Irish researchers signing an open letter to the Government yesterday, calling for an extension of lockdown restrictions in order to “crush the curve”.

    The little asterisk there is important. It refers:

    *The 2m physical distancing guidance is in line with current Public Health advice. This document will evolve to reflect new Public Health advice and changes to protocols as and when they emerge
