Bosses at the Belfast Trust are not expecting a further "significant" Covid-19 surge as Northern Ireland begins to move out of lockdown.

The board of the Belfast Health Trust has been told experts "are not projecting another major surge" similar to the recent deadly wave thanks to the success of the vaccination programme to date.

However, the board was also warned by Charlene Stoops, director of performance planning and informatics, the risk of a further wave of the virus is also dependent on the public adhering to Covid-19 health guidance.
