Covid-19 latest: 7-day incidence in Ireland among lowest in EU

The latest figures bring the total Covid-19 related deaths to 1,730.

Three more deaths related to the coronavirus in Ireland have been announced.

The latest figures bring the total Covid-19 related deaths to 1,730.

There has now been a total of 1,730 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland.

There are now a total of 25,414 confirmed cases of the virus in Ireland.

Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said: “WHO analysis has shown the 7-day incidence of COVID-19 in Ireland to be among the lowest in the EU. And this is thanks to (the) collective efforts of everyone.

“However, we are witnessing new outbreaks across various countries as they ease restrictions and this reminds us of two things – the importance of adherence to public health guidelines as we ease restrictions here in Ireland and the importance of continuing to avoid all non-essential travel.” 

Meanwhile, one further death was confirmed in the North earlier today, bringing the total deaths there to 548.
