Football pundits love cliches. It’s all about scoring goals. It’s a game of two halves. These sometimes creep into daily life. They can even apply to Covid-19. A couple of times during the pandemic we heard the phrase “losing the dressing room”. In February 2021 T he Irish Times had a headline saying the Government was “losing the dressing room” when it came to Covid-19. We had just had what is now a Covid-19 cliche — a "meaningful Christmas”. We all know how we paid for that in January 2021.

The question now is: has the Government lost the dressing room again and what do we need to do right now, as Covid-19 cases surge and hospitalisations head in the wrong direction?
