Covid-19 Update: Sun. 28th June 2020 – 1 Death – 3 New Cases

The total number of Covid-19 virus cases confirmed here in Co. Tipperary; as of midnight on Wednesday, June 24th, remains at 543, with zero cases identified over the previous 24-hour period.

This evening, the Department of Health has confirmed that sadly 1 further death has been caused by Covid-19 in Ireland over the last 24 hours. These latest figures leave the total number of deaths caused by this pandemic currently at 1,735.

This evening, it has also been confirmed that an additional 3 new cases of the virus have been identified, bringing the total since conception, here in the Republic of Ireland, to 25,439.

Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan has expressed serious worries regarding a trend that shows young people are testing positive for Covid-19 after an overnight spike in cases which saw people aged under 35 years accounting for almost 43% of the new positive identified tests.

He continues to urged young people to act responsibly, when the country enters a new phase in its battle with the virus from tomorrow. There remains concerns that the reopening of pubs serving food, as well as cafes, restaurants and other amenities / businesses will lead to a second wave of Covid-19 cases, if young people do not act responsibly.

Note: Shops, Ladies Hair Salons and Barbers are among other retail outlets which can resume trading.


Please make the effort to stay safe.
