“Through our collective action, we have moved in the right direction in our fight against widespread community transmission of COVID-19," Dr. Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said.

"As we go forward, the behaviour and progression of this disease is in all of our hands.

“Every single one of us today has the ability to reduce the impact the virus might have on our most vulnerable and those at risk.

"You can do this by keeping a physical distance from others or wearing a face covering when in busy public places like shops and public transport, and by continuing to keep your number of daily contacts as low as possible.”
