Covid-19 Update: Tue. 28th April 2020 – 59 Deaths – 229 New Cases

The Department of Health has confirmed this evening that a further 59 people have tragically died from the Covid-19 virus, here in the Republic of Ireland. These latest figures bring the death toll, from the virus, to 1,159.

A total of 229 new cases of the coronavirus have also, today, been identified here in the Republic, bringing the total since conception to 19,877.

Here in Co. Tipperary the number of virus cases reported has continued to increase. As at midnight on Saturday, April 26th last, cases confirmed were 370, an increase of 6 new cases over the previous day.

Nationally a total of 153,054 tests have now been carried out and over the past week, 41,470 of these tests identified 5,335 as being positive.

The National Public Health Emergency Team today were of the opinion that, as a nation, currently we are in no position to recommend any easing of current restrictions initially introduced to try stop the spread of the virus; latter due to lapse on Tuesday May 5th.

Sadly, our Irish TV channels appear to be giving more news time to the “Donald Trump’s” of Ireland, i.e. “professor” Mrs Mary Lou McDonald, leader of the “Bully Party” and that new leader of the “Famous Five”, (without Timmy the Dog), namely know-it-all “kite flying” Tipperary TD Mr Alan Kelly of the failed Labour Party.

Yes, we, the TV Licence paying public, would rather discussion with the National Public Health Emergency Team; Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anthony Holohan; Taoiseach and Physician Mr Leo Varadkar and Minister for Health Mr Simon Harris; latter group who are successfully attempting to get us through this unprecedented of times.
Following the Late, Late Show content last Friday night, perhaps it is now time to review paying your TV Licence fee; instead pay a subscription to Netflix.


Please listen, do as asked, social distance and isolate.
