A leading cancer doctor says protecting the sick and infirm from covid-19 should be enough reason to cancel the St Patrick's Day Parade.

 

Professor John Crown says evidence from China shows cancer patients and survivors have the highest rates of critical illness if infected.

 

Four people were confirmed to have tested positive for the virus on the island yesterday -- three in the North and one in the Republic.

 

He says it's not good enough for authorities to say a bout of covid-19 is a mild illness for most.
