‘Long, hard winter ahead’ – Daly


350 Covid cases in Roscommon


A well-known local GP says he referred more people for Covid testing during two work shifts last weekend than he had in the previous three months. Ballygar-based Dr. Martin Daly has warned that “a long, hard winter” lies ahead – and says complacency on the part of the public is contributing to increased numbers of infections.

  As of Monday evening, County Roscommon had 350 confirmed cases of Covid-19, an increase of one on the previous 24 hours. 18 counties have a higher number.

Last weekend, Dr. Martin Daly took to Twitter to raise his growing concern about where we stand in our battle with the pandemic. He tweeted: “Just finished weekend with Westdoc…1 very suspicious case and have referred more people in 2 shifts for testing than last 3 months. Covid-19 feeding on human complacency. Going to be a long hard winter”.
