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

"The single most important thing that people all across the country need to do now is to reduce their social contacts."

"We all need to cut down on discretionary social activities."

"Meeting fewer people means fewer opportunities for the virus to transmit."

"Please prioritise who you choose to meet and try to keep your social network as small as possible."

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