1,271 new cases were reported yesterday.

The World Health Organisation says Ireland is likely to have further 'surges' of Covid cases - beginning later this month.

The country's 14-day incidence rate fell by almost 25 per cent during September, and now stands at 395 cases per 100,000 people.

It was over 500 at the end of August, while 1,271 new cases were reported yesterday.

But Dr David Nabarro, the W-H-O's special envoy on Covid, believes cases will increase again in Ireland and throughout Europe.

Dr David Nabarro says there's a lull in active surges, but that will change shortly.
