Ireland's Taoiseach Micheal Martin announced on Tuesday the country would tighten its coronavirus restrictions after Christmas this Friday due to concerns over rising infection numbers and the new mutant strain of COVID-19, APA reports citing Teletrader.

Travel outside of individual counties will be permitted up to and including Stephen's Day, December 26, according to Martin, while visits to private households will be banned starting January 1, 2021.

"I know that these restrictions will pose huge challenges to some sections of the economy but I want to assure them that extra financial supports will be provided," the Irish Prime Minister said.
