A detailed new breakdown of confirmed Covid-19 cases around the country shows cases have been confirmed across the length and breadth of Cork, with significant numbers reported in areas including Fermoy, Bishopstown, Macroom, Ballincollig, Douglas, and Clonakilty.

The Department of Health data shows the volume of cases that have been reported for each of the 3,409 electoral divisions (EDs) around Ireland since the beginning of the outbreak.

It shows that almost 200 cases of Covid-19 have been reported from the Fermoy area since the beginning of the outbreak with 116 cases reported in the Fermoy Urban Division and a further 76 reported in the Fermoy Rural Division.

In other parts of North Cork, 22 cases were reported from Rathcormac, five cases from Kilworth, 15 from Mitchelstown, 45 cases from Macroom Urban ED and 31 cases were reported across the Mallow South Urban, Mallow North Urban and Mallow Rural divisions. 

In West Cork, 55 cases were reported across the Clonakilty Urban and Clonakilty rural EDs, 15 cases were reported from the Kinsale Rural ED, and eight cases were reported from Bandon.

In East Cork, 21 cases were reported across the Midleton Urban and Rural EDs, 18 across the Youghal Rural and Urban EDs, and 22 cases across the Cobh Urban and Rural EDs.

Significant numbers of cases were also reported from suburbs around the county with 57 cases reported from the Ballincollig ED, 36 reported from Douglas, at least 33 cases reported from the Carrigaline area.

It also identifies a multitude of areas, where while cases have been reported, the numbers are too small to report them. 

For example, the data shows at least one, but less than five cases of Covid-19 were reported from the Cape Clear ED, from Bantry, from Ballycotton and from Carrignavar, amongst other places. 

In the city, at least 60 cases were reported across six electoral divisions in the Bishopstown area, at least 18 cases across the Farranferris divisions, eight cases in Knocknaheeny, and at least nine cases in the Montenotte area.

It comes as the latest data from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) shows 1,535 had been reported from Cork up to Monday night, an increase of just four cases on the previous week.

Figures published this morning by the Central Statistics Office show 49 people in Cork with Covid-19 have died since the beginning of the outbreak (up to June 12th). 

Last night, three people with Covid-19 were receiving intensive care at hospitals in Cork.
