Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health

Update on Covid-19: Discussion

Dr. Tony Holohan:

On the first question, we monitor every aspect that we think is relevant and will continue to do so over the course of the winter. There are one or two slides that show how we compare to both the neighbouring regions of the UK and the rest of Europe in terms of our current incidence. That might be able to illustrate where we stand in relative terms. I know time will not allow us to go through the slide deck fully but we can make it available to members of the committee. With some of the slides it is a case of a picture being worth a thousand words. It is much easier to show and demonstrate how we are doing and what we are keeping a track of as compared with other countries by showing the committee some of those graphs, if we have time for that.
