Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the idea of a zero-Covid strategy has not been dismissed.
He said NPHET has never advised the Government to go for a zero-Covid strategy, but their position is we suppress the virus to the lowest possible level.
He said it would have to be a very long-term policy and there is a question of its sustainability.
