A suggestion there's not too much of an appetite for an even shorter isolation period. 

Covid cases and household contacts only have to isolate for seven days, from midnight Friday - with contacts testing on day three and seven. 

EMA Head of Advocacy Alan McDonald told Kate Hawkesby while the business community would like it to be less, there's a large chunk of the population still worried about living with the virus. 

“The other issue is I don’t think yet we've seen a peak through the health system and the Government has always taken a health approach, quite rightly, and I think until we see reach peak through the health system you’re not likely to see more change.”
