Covid-19 case numbers are “stuck” and possibly rising, according the HSE’s lead for Infection Control, as he warned of a real danger of another surge of the virus.
Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Professor Martin Cormican said the amount of vaccine distributed so far is not enough to reduce the spread of the virus in the community and the more people come together indoors, the faster the virus spreads.
Yesterday, the Department of Health reported 769 cases of Covid-19, the highest daily increase in cases reported since Friday 26 February.
Two further deaths due to Covid-19 were also reported.
