It comes after one of our leading health experts warned a second wave of Covid-19 in Ireland is not a matter of if, but when. Due to Ireland's relatively low number of cases compared to countries abroad, we could be more susceptible to a second coronavirus wave.

As few as 50,000 people - 1% of the population - may have been infected by the coronavirus, according to Professor Phillip Nolan of Maynooth University. The NPHET member made the warning on Thursday night as the latest cases and deaths were announced.


The head of disease modelling for NPHET said that it's not a matter of when but how big a second wave will be. Speaking on RTE's Prime Time, Professor Nolan said: "The level of immunity in the population is so low, whatever it is, it's not sufficiently high enough to offer us any sort of protection against the virus.

"The future will be different because the risks are different, we understand a great deal more about this virus, the people understand a lot more about this virus and how to protect themselves for it.

"The level of infection in the population right now is low and the HSE has a world class high capacity testing and contract tracing operation.

"It's not a question of if we will have a second wave, it's a question of when and how big? And that how big is under our individual control in terms of how we go about our business over the next few months and our collective control in terms of the measures we put in place to interrupt transmission. "We are going to have to be very vigilant of importing cases to the country."
