A compromise seems to be brewing amongst NPHET at the moment about allowing unvaccinated children under the age of 18 to be accompanied indoors into restaurants as long as there is a vaccinated parent with them. This is contra to what NPHET had announced before from a vaccination management point of view, where the advice was that only vaccinated parties should be allowed in indoor hospitality settings.

Professor Kingston Mills of the schools of Biochemistry and Immunology at Trinity College Dublin joined Gavan to discuss the surge in Delta Variant cases.

Mills said that the 19-34 age cohort make up about 40% of current covid cases in Ireland with the under 18 category counting for 30%. This displays that about 70% is accounted for by the younger population and this is how the virus is transmitting.
