Of the cases confirmed today:

  • 74 are men / 66 are women
  • 69 per cent are under 45 years of age
  • 32 are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
  • 19 cases have been identified as community transmission

Acting chief medical officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “Today marks six months since our first case of Covid-19. It has been a very difficult time for many and few have been left untouched in some way by the negative effects of this pandemic.

“However, it has also been a time of incredible solidarity, a time when a sense of community has come to the fore. We have seen innovation, cooperation, volunteerism and charity, and kindness on an enormous scale. Our frontline workers have stepped up again and again. But underpinning it all has been each person playing their part by making the right choices, many times, each day. Together, we have broken the chains of transmission and flattened the curve. As cases rise again, it is these same behaviours that will once again make the difference, protecting ourselves, our families and our communities."
