The Zero Covid Lobby has really sent this Government into a spin bringing in the MHQ, even Simon Coveney's brother has spoken out about it:

Nijmegen would have you believe that every immunized person is a Typhoid Mary.
If there were any meaningful risk then flu shots would have been banned as they'd be spreading the flu, not protecting from it.

This is the level of disinformation that is being pushed on the general public.

Cork Airport to close for 10 weeks to allow major runway reconstruction -- https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...tion-1.4537022

It makes logical sense to do the runway work this year while traffic is down, but I really can't see this helping to attract business back to ORK. In the time its closed I'd imagine a lot of what remains of its traffic will migrate permanently to DUB.

I can't really respond or discuss the vaccine stuff, except to say that the science is developing and policymakers are clearly changing their views based on that evidence as it emerges and their response as it impacts on the aviation industry. As the swings and roundabouts on various vaccines prove, this is a moving target and certainties are not in abundance. Personally I do think some measures are less effective than others but I also have sympathy for policymakers who are having to make decisions in a fast moving environment versus the certainty that people in various industries and just at home would like.

EasyJet has announced they plan to run 20% of their normal schedule between April and June and then see an increase over the summer, banking on vaccinated Brits getting to travel around Europe for their holidays. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/ea...085203147.html
