Poll: Covid-19: Should scanning be mandatory at pubs, clubs, restaurants, etc?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.
