We were warned well in advance that last month's easing of the Covid-19 regulations would result in a "banquet of consequences" - now it seems like it is going to be served up.

Dr Tom Black, chair of the British Medical Association in Northern Ireland, made the statement on December 4, following the Executive's decision to loosen restrictions in the run up to the festive season.

That same day the Department of Health announced six Covid-19-related deaths, while 449 positive cases were reported.
