Researchers have ranked the pandemic responses of 180 countries on a ‘stringency map’ by looking at how Covid restrictions have affected schools, offices, social gatherings, international travel and freedom to leave home
Each country was scored on a scale of one to 100, with a higher figure indicating the most severe virus-controlling curbs. The numbers represented an average since the start of the pandemic.
Compared to the UK, the Republic of Ireland was the only place in Europe that had stronger lockdown rules (87.96), the study said. Ireland’s rules are similar to England’s but most construction work has been stopped and click-and-collect shopping services are not allowed.

Something about Tomás Ryan being pretty much right about everything since last July really bugs this pair.
Could be to do with them still not grasping the basics of Covid while flailing around hopelessly for potential income streams. pic.twitter.com/7pJrJiGLn2

@MlMcNamaraTD Can you raise this with @MichealMartinTD ? I now have 25 peer reviewed analysis of lockdown efficacy on mortality. It’s zero or > base. The Jan 2021 Covid adjusted unemployment rate ( including PUP recipients) was 25%. Where is the Supreme Court? @TraceyOMahony81 pic.twitter.com/nppkHw5PXO
