There are urgent issues that need to be addressed before we can even think about lifting the COVID-19 restrictions, according to an infectious diseases expert.
Professor Jack Lambert - Professor in Infectious Diseases at the Mater, Rotunda and UCD School of Medicine - suggested the lack of hygiene facilities in some public spaces is "an embarrassment".
The current strict restrictions remain in place until May 5th.
Officials will consider easing restrictions once they feel the number of coronavirus cases is under control, but Health Minister Simon Harris has warned there's 'no magic point' next month when things go back to normal.
Prof Lambert said clusters among the likes of the homeless, students and drug users need to be identified and a strategy to deal with them put in place.
He also told Newstalk Breakfast that adequate hygiene facilities for the public are also needed.
He explained: "We've not done most of the things that the WHO are necessary to unlock the lockdown.
"You can't unlock the lockdown until you've got all your ducks in a row - and we have most of our ducks not in a row."
Prof Lambert said: "The WHO says you have to have sanitary facilities in the centres where people are going in and out of, even during the lockdown.
"I've walked around town when I've been going to and from work and in other situations... and it's an embarrassment the kind of facilities that are there.
"People are doing what they can - but is it the responsibility of a little shop to have all the hand sanitisers? They need directions, they need supervision, they need support... none of that is in place."
He said somebody also needs to take ownership of deep cleaning and hygiene processes across transport facilities such as public transport to public bike schemes - stressing that the solution 'isn't baby wipes'.
