There are 211 new cases of Covid-19 in the Republic, and one more death.

121 of the cases are in Dublin, 17 are in Louth and 10 are in Limerick.

The remaining cases are spread across 19 other counties.

42 have been identified as community transmission, which means they have no known origin.

Of the cases notified today;

  • 100 are men / 108 are women
  • 73% are under 45 years of age
  • 28% are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
  • 42 cases have been identified as community transmission
  • 121 in Dublin, 17 in Louth, 10 in Limerick, 8 in Cork, 7 in Westmeath, 7 in Wicklow, 6 in Laois, 5 in Donegal, 5 in Galway, and the remaining 24 cases are in Carlow, Clare, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Longford, Mayo, Meath, Offaly, Roscommon, Tipperary, and Waterford.

The total number of cases is 30,571, and there have been 1,781 deaths.

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

“While we are seeing a continued increase in cases, particularly in Dublin, this is at least partly due to the willingness of people to heed our core messages around knowing the symptoms and coming forward promptly for testing."

"This together with all of the other key behaviours will help to break the chains of transmission in our communities."

“This weekend, please limit your social contacts, especially visitors to your home. Avoid crowds, keep your distance from others and wear a face covering where appropriate.”

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