Ireland’s second nationwide lockdown comes into force

Ireland is facing the toughest set of restrictions for six weeks as it enters a second lockdown. The entire country moved to the highest level of restrictions under the Government’s five-tiered framework. In doing so it has become the first country in Europe to re-impose a nationwide lockdown in an effort to tackle the record number of cases over recent weeks. The strict measures will remain in place until December 1.
