No new COVID-19 deaths and 11 new cases have been announced this evening.

It takes the death toll in Ireland to 1,746 and the total number of confirmed cases to 25,638.

Health officials said 74% of the confirmed cases detected in the past two weeks were under the age of 45.

Meanwhile, 12% of cases were travel-related.

Simple Measures Can Be The Game Changers

The acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn had information of new research carried out on behalf of the Department of Health.

So it found that nearly 40% of the population now believes the worst of the pandemic is still ahead of us.

"This does not have to be the case," he said.

"Simple measures like hand washing, physical distancing, face coverings in appropriate settings."

"Cough/sneeze etiquette and watching out for symptoms are the crucial elements in suppressing COVID-19.”
