The Department of Health has reported 1,725 new cases of Covid-19 in Ireland today.

As of 8am today, 473 people were hospitalised. That's an increase of 23 since yesterday.

97 people with COVID-19 are in the country's Intensive Care Units - up four since yesterday.

A Professor of Health Systems from DCU says the government should have introduced more effective measures before reopening.

Anthony Staines, says public health measures should have been improved before restrictions were eased:

"We're thinking here of things like more effective ventilation in pubs and restaurants.

"We're thinking about more effective ventilation in schools, more effective contact tracing.

"Effectively we've switched off contact tracing completely in schools and the level of contact tracing we've had really since the beginning of the pandemic hasn't been good enough to control the virus."
