Holohan warns of surge risk if too much social mixing

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has praised the sacrifices people have made over the last year, but warned that too much social mixing, especially indoors, even for those who have been vaccinated, will increase the risk of a further surge of Covid-19.

In an open letter published today in national newspapers, Dr Holohan says most of those vaccinated, so far, are people who would have been recommended to cocoon at the outset of the pandemic.

He says they can restart many things they used to do, once restrictions ease from 10 May. However, he said it is important that such people keep up compliance with public health advice and existing restrictions.
