Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health

Update on Covid-19: Discussion

Professor Philip Nolan:

As mentioned in previous evidence, from our June models optimistic to central scenarios projected between 80,000 and 120,000 cases. We have had 100,000 cases so we are just slightly worse than optimistic against the June models. In regard to the late August models, essentially, we are tracking slightly better than the optimistic scenario.
