Our hugely popular newsletter brings you the latest developments.

Updated 9 March 2022

IRELAND IS EXPERIENCING a level of normality not felt since before March 2020.

Covid restrictions have been lifted, case numbers are taking a back seat, and you’ll see fewer and fewer masks being worn in day-to-day life.

While our attitude has changed, the virus itself hasn’t gone away and remains in high circulation. Questions remain as to how this approach will pan out.

What does it mean for the most vulnerable? How many people are still becoming ill? Could we see a new variant?

It can be difficult to stay on top of all the stats and figures, what threats remain, what information about vaccines or the virus is true or false, and generally how Ireland is faring in this battle against the coronavirus.

The Journal‘s hugely popular coronavirus newsletter has cut through the confusion and misinformation with clear, up-to-date facts, since it was launched in March 2020.
