The Public Health Agency should disclose the locations of Covid-19 clusters here, a leading health expert has said.

Professor Gabriel Scally, a former NHS doctor and professor of Public Health at the University of Bristol, said more transparency on the issue would be "helpful" to the public.

"It might change people's views about whether they might want to go to a particular geographical spot. It might be helpful for people who live in that area to be especially careful," he told the Belfast Telegraph.
