A senior member of the National Public Health Emergency Team says the country's 7-day incidence rate of Covid-19 is decreasing.

However Professor Philip Nolan says although it has fallen to 1,421 from 1,784, the level of virus transmission is still very high.

He says the coming weeks are our opportunity to drive infection rates down so we can continue the plan to reopen safely.

Yesterday, 1,620 new cases of Covid-19 were reported - an increase of 328 on the day before.
