Martin: It’s just too early to say what we’ll be able to reopen on October 22nd

The Taoiseach Micheal Martin said that there’s a variety of options we can look at before NPHET meets the government on Tuesday.

He said that it’s more than likely that the covid cert will remain and people will have their certs checked on the way into hospitality services such as restaurants and pubs.

However, Martin said that some of the last remaining restrictions may be lifted but that it’s just too early to say what that will be until the government meet with NPHET on  Tuesday.

The government say that they’re not going to press the panic button, but alas it would seem as though the extent of what restrictions, if any, will be lifted next Friday is now very much in doubt.

The Taoiseach Micheal Martin has painted a very bleak picture in relation to Ireland’s planned full reopening on October 22nd.

It’s understood that both Fine Gael and Fianna Fail told their parliamentary party that the covid situation is once again extremely serious and that there’s more than 400 people in hospitals around the country with coronavirus.

Martin said that the government is no longer in a position to guarantee the reopening of society as planned for October 22nd. It’s yet another promise made by the government that will be broken should the reopening be scrapped.
