An emergency physician says complacency is the biggest danger to flattening the coronavirus curve.
That is the view of public health lecturer at University College Cork, Dr Chris Luke, who says we are doing well but we cannot celebrate just yet.
He told The Pat Kenny Show: "I think our team at the top of playing a blinder - the danger I suppose is complacency".
"I think it's a bit like being three points up against the All Blacks in the first 15 minutes.
"There's a long way to go against one of the greatest threats, one of the toughest opponents, we've ever faced.
"So I think the greatest hazard is complacency.
"This idea that 'Oh yeah, we've definitely flattened the curve' - we haven't definitely done anything.
"We won't know for months, or even years, whether we were successful or relatively how successful we were.
"My greatest concern is that we come a little bit too cocky or too complacent.
"We expect a surge."
"There's no doubt this is the calm before the storm, there's no doubt.
"There is cause for some incredibly cautions optimism.... We really have got to be very, very vigilant.
"You know the old expression: the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
"We have got to be incredibly vigilant for the next four to six weeks.
And if anything our comings and goings should be reduce even further, that's what I would say".
