I thank the Vice Chairman for facilitating me. I am concerned about the high levels of disease in Northern Ireland. Has NPHET been monitoring the situation in Northern Ireland from the perspective of the Border counties and has it particular concerns about our Border counties? Does Dr. Holohan envisage there is a greater threat of regional lockdown in the Border counties because of the high levels of infection in Northern Ireland?
