New data published by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) shows that, up to that date, there had not been a Covid-19 related death reported in Cork since early June.
Nationally, 1,525 people with Covid-19 were reported to have died up to August 21, while a further 251 deaths are cited as “probable deaths linked to the virus”.
A total of 49 Covid-19 related deaths have been reported in Cork since the beginning of the pandemic.
The median age of those who have died is 83 years.
While there have not been any Covid-19 related deaths reported in Cork in almost three months, the number of cases being reported in Cork is increasing.
Another 127 new cases were reported by the Department of Health last night. There were no further deaths.
Acting chief medical officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “While the number of people in critical care remains stable, we have seen an additional eight people hospitalised in the last 24 hours.
“If cases continue to rise, we will see an inevitable increase in the number of people hospitalised. We all have a role to play in preventing that from happening.”
