Taoiseach Michael Martin this morning announcing 100 new jobs at Workvivo software company in Cork
Exham House, The Fingerpost, Cork.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) ‘may advise’ Government on localised restrictions in cities such as Cork, Waterford, Limerick and Galway, where the number of coronavirus cases continues to rise.
Speaking this afternoon in Cork, Micheál Martin said NPHET is “very concerned” about the spread of the virus in these cities.
He said he had been told by the Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn that the number of cases in Cork was “rising in a straight line“.
He said he was flagging with people now that these cities are danger areas, and steps need to be taken to control the spread of the virus there.
Mr Martin said curbing the spread of the virus remained in people’s own hands….
