The Taoiseach says the Delta variant of Covid-19 is an ongoing concern and will be a 'slow-burner'.

He told his parliamentary party last night testing and tracing will be increased to try to address the highly transmissible strain.

The highest number of Covid cases in 76 days was reported yesterday, with 581 new infections.

Professor Emer Shelley, from the Royal College of Physicians, says we're at the start of the fourth wave.
