The tourist industry is probably the reason.

It is - but surely its less damaging for the rest of the economy to support a semi-shuttered tourist sector than to go through this again.

I'm not disagreeing with you. I might be if my job or business was on the line.

What would be the logic behind that though?

Hotels etc due to open July 20 I would say things will be very quiet that week so your talking July 27th thatís 4 weeks realistically to make enough money to keep you going until March 2021
I can see lots of places going under from September on
Cafe shops pubs restaurants alike
8 more deaths in the north today only 8 new cases
Of the 8 deaths 7 were from weeks ago as far back as April 18 only 1 from yesterday.
A long way to go but certainly improving
The low cases is great to see

Penny has finally dropped it seems for Sweden. With their top epidemiologist Anders Tegnell admitting that too many people have died in their country they should have done more to prevent the spread of the disease.

They will now use start using the "test, trace and isolate" to combat the virus while the so called herd-immunity strategy is scrapped.

I saw this on the BBC website however the Chief Scientific Officer said today that the north's R rate is somewhere between 0.8. and 1.  How can the R rate be as high as that with new cases for the past week or so being so low?

if we knew exactly how R rate is worked out it would help. Michelle and arlene had no clue the other day when asked at a press conference. Considering they refer to this  daily it speaks volumes

47 cases in the 26 today, a lot more than yesterday.

It seems that Monaghan, the last county in the 26 to get the disease, is now the epicentre.
Always a bit behind everyone else.

One GP in Monaghan had 8 cases over the weekend.

I wonder what the right wingers who were trumpeting Sweden think now?

More yes but the last 7 days average was 48 cases per day here . Under 800 active cases in the ROI is more encouraging news.

Isnt the R rate up to 2 weeks behind the actual day it is announced on?

Interesting viewing outside City Hall this afternoon.....

Might as well just open the pubs and be done with it...

I know itís an important issue, but weíre either observing social distancing or we arenít.
