A specialist in public health medicine at the HSE Mid-West has said we are "at a very precarious spot" in the fight against the Covid-19 virus and has urged people to stay safe and remain vigilant in the coming weeks as relaxations are eased.

Dr Anne Dee said that given the "inevitable surge" of the Delta variant in Ireland people should "hang on for a few weeks" and continue to meet outdoors, wear masks and wash their hands to "hopefully avoid the worst of what is possible".

She told RTÉ's Morning Ireland that transmission of the Delta variant remains high among young people and some young people and children have been hospitalised with symptoms of Covid-19.
