Poll: Should Ireland increase its level of Covid-19 restrictions?

The Government already rejected NPHET’s Level 5 recommendation earlier this month and instead opted for Level 3.

HEALTH OFFICIALS LAST night warned that if Level 3 restrictions on visitors have no effect on the spread of the coronavirus, it’s forecast that there will be between 1,800-2,200 Covid-19 cases a day, and over 400 people with Covid-19 in hospital by Halloween. 

The Government already rejected NPHET’s Level 5 recommendation earlier this month and instead opted for nationwide Level 3 restrictions. 

With Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan entering Level 4 restrictions today after a drastic rise in cases, concerns are growing that Level 3 restrictions are not proving effective enough. 

Today, we want to know: Should Ireland move up a level of restrictions?


Poll Results:

Yes, we should go to Level 5 (6685)
No, let's wait and see if Level 3 visitor restrictions are effective (5497)
Yes, we should go to Level 4 (2879)
I don't know/I've no opinion  (504)
