"The medical advice this week was clear on the best way to control and suppress the virus."

From the start of this pandemic, my priority as Joint Head of government in the north has been to save lives, ease the pressure on our health service and provide support for workers and their families impacted by the virus.

That has guided me from the outset. And in all decisions taken I have been guided by the expert medical and scientific advice provided to us.

That remained the case this week, and during the many Executive meetings I chaired, as I sought to reach consensus and we tried to reach agreement on the way forward.
