However, University Hospital Limerick (UHL), latter a medical facility which serves North Co. Tipperary, has seen a sharp rise in suspected Covid-19 cases over the past week.

UHL had 11 suspected Covid-19 cases on Saturday last, July 4th according to the HSE’s daily operations update. By Friday, July 10th, this case load had risen to 29, before increasing again to 38 by late yesterday, July 11th. Same indicates a rise of 27 suspected Covid-19 cases in just one week, leaving University Hospital Limerick with the highest number of suspected Covid-19 cases currently in the Republic of Ireland.

This evening, the Department of Health has confirmed that there have been zero death caused by this pandemic, leaving the overall death toll here in the Republic of Ireland at 1,746.

However, there were 17 new additional cases reported to the Department of Health, leaving the current total number of confirmed cases since conception at 25,628.

Of the new cases recorded over the past 24 hours we are aware that 21 new cases are recorded as being in the following counties:- Co.Dublin in total there are 12,294 (7 new cases), Co. Kildare 1,513 (7 new cases), Co. Meath 812 (stable today), Co. Cork 1545 (stable today), Co. Wicklow 705 (5 new cases), Co. Sligo 148 (1 new case), Co. Mayo 573 (stable today), Co. Limerick 589 (stable today) and Co. Kerry 311 (1 new cases). At least 4 cases it appears, have been reclassified.

Remember from tomorrow, face masks are compulsory on public transport.

With more than one million downloads since its release this week, the launch of the COVID-19 tracker app has been an unqualified success.

Meanwhile, under current restrictions, everyone entering Ireland is required to fill up a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form and they are also being advised to self-isolate for 14 days. The vast majority however are not adhering to this request and no officials are checking. It would appear that share holder dividend returns for Ryan Air and Aer Lingus are more important than actual life.
