Can this be the same Cabinet? September 25, 2020

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

From the Independent last week:

A senior Cabinet member defended the delay in reacting to the advice [to impose restrictions] by noting that the rise in cases has yet to lead to a significant increase in hospitalisations or deaths.

“Yes, there is an increase but bear in mind during an average flu season there are hundreds of deaths and we don’t get into lockdown,” the source said.

Now in the Examiner though…

“It is looking very doubtful Dublin will emerge. It would take a miracle when you look where the numbers are and, more alarmingly, where they are going,” said one senior minister.

“At this point, it’s hard to see it happening,” one source said about the easing of restrictions in Dublin.

“You could need a week or two longer to really get the number down,” said another.


Government sources also say they are worried by the rise in figures in Cork, which has thus far managed to avoid a second wave. Shutting down the two largest cities at once would be “a dire situation”, they say.

Many would say it already is a ‘dire situation’.
