There have been 50 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed.

There is now a total of 26,303 confirmed cases of COVID-19 here.

However no new deaths were reported to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre on Wednesday.

Death toll remains at 1,763.

Of the cases notified today;

  • 31 are men / 19 are women
  • 81% are under 45 years of age
  • 42 are associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
  • 4 cases have been identified as community transmission
  • 11 cases are located in Wexford, 10 in Kildare, 6 in Dublin, 5 in Donegal, and 18 are spread across nine other counties (Carlow, Cork, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Sligo, Tipperary and Wicklow).

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

“I know the decision yesterday not to move to Phase 4 will have been disappointing for many."

"However, NPHET’s priority must be to control the spread of this virus in our communities and to protect the progress that we have achieved to date."

"COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus and we have seen a significant increase in its spread across multiple counties over recent days. We are monitoring this very closely."

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