The government won't decide until Monday at the earliest if it's going to put Ireland to level five public health restrictions.

Talks at government buildings have wrapped up for the night after hours of briefings from senior public health officials.

Speaking as he left the meeting, Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said the Goverment shares concerns around the increasing numbers, which he said are also occurring across Europe and the rest of the world.

While no decisions have been taken, there is a growing expectation among some Cabinet ministers that the country will be moved to a higher level of alert in the coming days, but that it will fall short of the Level 5 for six weeks recommendation made by the NPHET.
