Things are moving in the right direction was the overall message from Dr Tony Holohan yesterday. With reported new Covid cases down to 767 yesterday, we’re definitely in a better place than were two weeks ago.
The Chief Medical Officer was quietly optimistic. “Even when were experiencing the exponential growth in the last number of weeks, the increasing number of cases we saw from late September to October we were still reporting a reproductive number of 1.4. That’s still quite a large amount of suppression”, Dr Holohan said.
