Covid-19 latest: CMO calls for extra effort as dozens of new cases confirmed in Cork 

There have been 432 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and one additional death reported to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre today.

This brings the total number of Covid-19 related deaths in Ireland to 1,811.

111 of the cases are reported in Dublin, 51 in Donegal, 41 in Cork, 32 in Clare and the remaining 197 are located across 20 counties. 

Of the new cases reported today, 218 are in men and 214 in women, while 62 per cent are under the age of 45.

As Ireland prepares to move into Stage 3 tonight, Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has encouraged everyone to make an extra effort in the coming weeks to help stop the spread of the virus.

“It is essential that there is a broad societal effort over the coming weeks. Every one of us has the power to interrupt the spread of the virus and now is a vital time to use it,” he said.

“Focus on what you can do; wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering, keep your distance from other, avoid crowds, limit your social network, know the symptoms and what to do if you experience them, or are a close contact of a confirmed case.”
