That's despite easing of restrictions.

New cases of Covid-19 have decreased by 2 per cent over the past week - despite restrictions lifting.

2,870 have been reported in the past seven days, 61 fewer than the previous week.

That's despite the ban on inter-county travel being lifted last Monday, along with several other measures.

360 new cases were reported yesterday.

But public health expert, Professor Gabriel Scally, says foreign holidays should remain off the agenda for the coming months.

The World Health Organisation says the Covid-19 pandemic is far from over.

It says there was a global decline in cases and deaths last week, for the second week in a row.

But director-general Tedros Ghebreyesus there are still worrying signs.
