THE DÁIL LAST week again heard calls for a Zero-Covid strategy in Ireland, with opposition parties asking for the “maximum suppression” of the virus.

Zero-Covid involves the complete elimination of community transmission of Covid-19. New Zealand is among the countries to adopt this approach.

The Irish government has asserted that such an approach is not realistic here – in part due to the open border between the Republic and Northern Ireland – or achievable.

However, a number of opposition TDs and experts say a stricter approach to tackling the virus is the best way to ensure we get back to ‘normal’ as soon as possible.

What do you think: Should Ireland adopt a Zero-Covid strategy?


Poll Results:

Yes (8018)
