It comes as the Chief Medical Officer prepares to warn TDs that the vaccine programme alone will not be capable of supressing the Delta variant over winter.

In his submission to the Oireachtas Health Committee tomorrow morning, Dr Tony Holohan will warn that Ireland will depend on “public understanding and buy-in to the basic public health measures” to keep the virus in check.

He will also warn that NPHET “cannot fully rule out” the re-introduction of public health restrictions in the future.
