Dublin hasn't shown the evidence needed to lift level three restrictions on the county so far.
That's according to the acting Chief Medical Officer who's said we'll only start to see the impact of restrictions in the coming days.
Donegal has overtaken the worst regions of Dublin with 204.2 cases per 100,000 over the past 14 days.
Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn has said it's too early to make a call on easing the current restrictions in place:
"I fully appreciate the need for certainty but what I would say is that the measures that were put in place for Dublin would only be beginning to take effect yesterday, today, tomorrow.
"We do need to see significant improvement over the coming days in Dublin, we've not seen it yet."
