Almost 1.4 million Dubliners face the threat of new Covid-19 restrictions if skyrocketing case numbers are not brought under control.

There is increasing concern in Government about the situation in Dublin with 182 new cases announced yesterday.

The Cabinet discussed the rise in cases in Dublin and Limerick when they met to sign off on allowing all pubs reopen on September 21.
