Covid-19 Update: Sun. 2nd Aug. 2020 – Zero Deaths – 53 New Cases

“Keep fighting hard against Covid-19 virus”

The Government is expected to introduce random testing at airports because the International situation in relation to the Covid-19 virus is becoming more volatile.

Minister for Health Mr Stephen Donnelly stated: “We’re introducing random testing at the airports and an increased public health presence while examining other options as well with regard to restrictions on non-essential travel”

This evening, the Department of Health has confirmed that there have been zero new deaths caused by this pandemic, leaving the overall death toll here in the Republic of Ireland remaining at 1,763.

However, there were 53 new additional cases reported to the Department of Health, leaving the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception, now at 26,162.

Of the cases notified today, 27 are men; 26 are women and 80% are under the age of 45 years.

Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn has again warned, “We all need to continue to adopt a prevention mindset and continue making good choices to protect ourselves and others while trying to live safely with Covid-19”.

There have been zero new cases of the Covid-19 virus identified here in Co. Tipperary over the past two days, leaving the total number of cases remaining at 545, within our county boundary. However, University Hospital Limerick, the medical facility serving North Tipperary, has the highest number of suspected Covid-19 cases in the country.
