Whatever the rights or wrongs of the release of the latest National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) recommendation, (‘Nation slides back to tightest restrictions’, Irish Independent, October 5), and the Government being “surprised given its societal and economic indications”, the reality is that we need to put our faith in Nphet. The Government and its agencies failed to properly implement the measures at Levels 2 and 3 where they applied, and the softly-softly approach allowed the virus to spread beyond those counties.

Nphet has shown itself to be a united positive force but it needs be backed up by the enforcement of measures from united political leaders.
