Covid-19 figures

38 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed.

No new death has been notified to the Department of Health.

There has now been a total of 1,763 Covid-19 related deaths in Ireland.

As of midnight Thursday 30th July, the HPSC has been notified of 38 confirmed cases of Covid-19. There is now a total of 26,065 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Ireland.

The HSE is working to identify any contacts the patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.

Of today’s 38 cases;

  • 22 males/ 16 females
  • Median age 30 years
  • 82% are under 45 years of age
  • 32 cases are located in Dublin or Kildare
  • 26 are associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of confirmed cases

Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said;

“Mass testing has now taken place in relation to a number of known outbreaks.

“We may be beginning to see more cases which we cannot link to outbreaks or close contacts. The National Public Health Emergency Team will continue to monitor this situation closely over the coming days.”

“The importance of isolating as soon as you have any flu like symptoms cannot be overstated. Without this individual action we simply will not break the chains of transmission and we will put many people at risk of infection.

“It is important that people know that there is no charge for GP or testing services relating to Covid-19. Please do not hesitate to contact your GP if you have any concerns."

“This weekend, the six key things people need to do are limit the size of your network & time you spend with them, keep your distance, meet up outside if possible, wash your hands, wear a face covering and download the COVID Tracker App.”
