IT IS expected that Ireland will remain on lockdown for another month, with the Government set to extend the majority of the current restrictions.
Government officials and members of the National Public Heath Emergency Team (NPHET) remain in regular contact as the Covid-19 pandemic evolves daily.
A week ago last night, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar introduced the most extreme of measures that effectively put the country into lockdown.
Initially, the restrictions were to last until Easter Sunday, April 12.
However, it is widely expected that the Government will extend that period in the coming days.
There are indications that restrictions on attendances at funerals, for instance, may be relaxed if not completely lifted when the next announcement is made. An update is likely to come by the middle of the week.
There have been 77 positive cases of Covid-19 in Donegal since the outbreak.
In the Republic of Ireland, there have been 4,273 confirmed cases and 120 people have died.Tags:
