Today with Claire Byrne on RTÉ Radio One.
NPHET’s Professor Philip Nolan said:
“Leaving your home with Covid-like or flu-like symptoms has to become socially unacceptable in the same way that drink driving has become socially unacceptable. It is dangerous now for people to mix if one of them has any kind of symptoms and we really need to err on the side of caution here and we’re better off staying at home, if you have anything that suggests you have this disease.
“You could infect that unvaccinated person, the one-in-ten, potentially, in your workplace even though you’re vaccinated, if you feel sick with this.”
