St Mary’s Mansions, Dublin.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe at the launch of the North East Inner City 2021 Progress Report.
Mr Martin told reporters:
“I think the measures we announced a few weeks ago, a call to arms if you like, where we asked the public to reduce social contacts, reduce socialisation, work from home where possible, get vaccinated, get the booster when you’re asked, is having an impact.
“The CMO is watching the dual challenges of the potential flu season early in the new year or the end of this year and the Omicron variant.
“There are challenges we have to be mindful of and obviously NPHET are meeting today, they will make recommendations to the government and the government will then consider those.”
