Overall situation 'stable but uncertain' Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn told this afternoon's briefing that the overall situation was "stable but uncertain".

He said that while deaths and hospitalisations were down, and the impact of vaccines was being felt, people still needed to be on their guard as restrictions are eased next week.

He said the number of close contacts per case has risen slightly from 2.6 to 2.8, and that as restrictions are eased next week they should keep their contacts low, and only meet up outdoors.
