The next seven days are "vital" in Ireland's ongoing battle to curb the spread of coronavirus, according to Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan.

The next 7 days are vital. Now is the time to #FlattenTheCurve,'' he declared on Twitter.

Dr Holohan urged everyone to play their part by taking the following steps. These are:

1. Reduce your social contacts - see only a handful of people in your network

2. Distance yourself two metres from people in shops and supermarkets 

3. Stop shaking hands or hugging when you say hello
