"This is reinforced by our estimated reproduction number which is now stable between 0.4 and 0.6".

"We still want to see progress over the coming days", he said.

"We will be monitoring this figure and the overall number of infections in the population very closely over the coming weeks".

"I would urge everyone to become familiar with the behaviours that we all need to maintain, including respiratory etiquette, physical distancing and handwashing".
