Further measures will be introduced in our response to the coronavirus after a record number of deaths and infection rates were reported yesterday.
Yesterday, the virus claimed a further 17 lives, bringing the death toll to 71.
325 new cases have been confirmed, including 6 in Clare, which means 40 cases have now been recorded in Clare and 3,235 across the country.
Doctors and nurses could soon be asked not to live together to stop the spread of the infection.
Tony Fitzpatrick from the INMO says this needs to be done right.
