Covid-19 figures

92 cases of Covid-19 have been reported in the Republic of Ireland today.

72% are under 45 years of age, and Dublin and Kildare both account for 24 cases each.

Health officials say there are no further deaths related to the virus.

The total number of cases is 26,929, and the death toll remains at 1,774.

Of the cases notified today;

  • 43 are men / 48 are women
  • 72% are under 45 years of age
  • 43 are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
  • 12 cases have been identified as community transmission
  • 24 in Dublin, 24 in Kildare, 8 in Limerick, 6 in Carlow, 6 in Kilkenny, 5 in Meath, 5 in Clare, and remaining 14 cases are in Cork, Donegal, Kerry, Laois, Louth, Monaghan, Offaly, Waterford and Wicklow.

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

“We expected that this week the daily figures we report would rise and fall."

"NPHET is closely monitoring all trends, patterns and changes in the data, including not just case numbers but locations, age groups, and sources of transmission."

“We are asking those in Kildare, Laois and Offaly to hold firm and stay with us in the measures introduced last weekend."

"As today’s figures show, cases are also occurring in several other counties around the country."

"This is still about a united, whole of country approach."

"The only way we can effectively suppress COVID-19 across Ireland in the long term is if we act together to protect each other."

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