Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe
“Intense discussions” on how the country will exit Level 5 restrictions are “necessary” and are under way, the Finance Minister has said, describing it as a “decision of magnitude”.
Paschal Donohoe said the Government is hearing assessments from NPHET, adding it is important to acknowledge that the country is making progress on beating the virus.
“If you are looking at all indicators where we were a few weeks ago we are in a better place but not as good a place as we would like to be,” Mr Donohoe stated.
Ireland's Prime Minister was correct many weeks ago – Level 5 Lockdown would backfire and was not scientific
– rather it was anti-science from hardcore NPHET "Zero Covid" delusionists
Shocking damage they've created though.
