The country’s strategy with Covid-19 is not working and we don’t have control of the virus, according to an expert.

Tomas Ryan, an associate professor at Trinity College, fears we could be in a situation in a couple of weeks where restrictions may need to be reimposed as cases continue to rise.

“What we’re doing is not working and we need to think about making some changes”, he claims.

“Clearly, cases are still rising and it doesn’t feel like we have any control of this”.

Thomas goes on to point out that:

“Many of the cases that were identified were close contacts of previously confirmed cases. The problem is they were spreading the virus for at least a couple of days before that because our test-trace-isolation infastructure is still not fast enough”.

50 new cases of coronavirus were reported by the Department of Health last night.
