Lockdown deja vu – Government say they’ll take public health advice over wearing face masks again




As doctors say numbers are going through the roof with covid, the government appear to be bending to Holohan and the gang again.

Big Tony has re-emerged this week with the horror of many, with some saying that it’s getting absolutely ridiculous at this stage and that people need to just live with covid and get on with their lives.

Micheal Martin has said that although Covid-19 remains here, the current public health advice says we don’t need to wear masks for the time being.

Even though there have been requests to reintroduce masks, RTE reports that Martin:

“The public advice at the moment is not to go down that particular route, but we have to take on board that cases are rising so people have to be vigilant.

“People should wear masks if they feel that it protects them and if they’re of a view that that’s in their best interests, but it’s personal responsibility at this particular point in time.

“Covid is with us for the longer term.

“What I would appeal to people is to get vaccinated, particularly those who have been recommended for a fourth vaccine.

“Please get vaccinated because we know vaccination works in terms of preventing serious illness and death and that’s the key message that I would have today – get vaccinated – to people who are not vaccinated or haven’t taken their fourth vaccination,” he said.
