Ireland Braces for Level Five Restrictions Following NPHET Warning
Cabinet will today sign off on tighter measures for the entire country after NPHET advised a six week lockdown with the most severe restrictions.
Cabinet will today sign off on further restrictions for the country in response to Ireland’s fast growing COVID infection rate.
It comes after former health minister Simon Harris warned yesterday that “tomorrow we will have to bring in more restrictions. Level Three has not worked”.
NPHET made a six-week lockdown recommendation on Thursday, though as yet it’s unclear if the country will go into full Level Five or if it will be a mix of Level Four and Five.
The executive branch of Government meets this morning to decide on whether Ireland moves to Level Five – the most severe rung on the country’s Living With COVID plan.
Minister Harris did make it very clear that more restrictions are on the cards for the entire country.
He added: “The government will act tomorrow, the action will be decisive and it will be nationwide action.
