The NPET today imposed three new restrictions on the country after announcing alarming new figures.
Experts decided to make the changes after noticing that the situation had worsened since last week.
The new restrictions are:
- No more than two houses can be visited at any one time.
- You can continue to meet people from other social settings, but only with people from another household.
- People can only have six visitors from one house to their home.
The five-day average of cases is now 412, an increase in the incidence rate for 18 teens compared to last week.
In a statement this evening, NPET said it was closely monitoring the situation.
“The number of reproductions is estimated to be between 1.2 and 1.4, with a growth rate of 4-5% per day.
The NPET today expressed a particular concern regarding trends in disease severity indicators.
Of the 119 people hospitalized, 20 were in critical condition. In September, 32 people died.
“Despite a number of particularly high-profile cases continuing, the NPEET’s major concern is the overall national picture.”
The NPET also extended the existing Level 2 restrictions by three weeks.
442 new virus cases confirmed. Four more people fell ill.
The actual expiration dates for Donegal and the Level 3 restrictions in Dublin still exist.
