Covid-19 figures

A further 44 people are confirmed to have died from Covid-19 in the Republic.

388 new cases have also been confirmed today.

It now brings the death toll to 730 & the number of confirmed cases stands at 16,040.

The worldwide death toll from Covid-19 has risen to over 170,000.

It comes as a new United Nations report shows global food hunger could nearly double this year.

The World Food Programme says a quarter of a billion people face acute food insecurity.

135 million people suffered severe food shortages last year, however the Covid-19 economic fallout could see that double.

The global death toll has risen above 171,000, according to Johns Hopkins University, with 2.5 million confirmed cases.

The US is still the country worst-hit, with over 42,000 deaths and 787,000 cases.

Italy, Spain and France have each had over 20,000 fatalities.

Italy yesterday saw a fall in infections, while Spain saw its lowest daily fatalities in weeks.

A further 778 people with Covid have died in England - the biggest increase in two weeks, while 25 more have died in Wales, and 70 in Scotland.

Overall deaths in England and Wales hit a 20-year high at the start of April.
