Covid-19 clusters in schools likely when they reopen – De Barra

A leading health expert says it's very likely there'll be clusters of Covid-19 in schools when they reopen.

The local lockdown will continue in Kildare until September 6th - but schools will still reopen before that.

There have been 444 cases of coronavirus in Kildare since the restrictions were imposed two weeks ago.

And Dr Eoghan De Barra, a consultant in infectious diseases, says there's a big danger the virus will spread into schools.
