Covid-19 Update: Thursday 4th June 2020 – 5 Deaths – 38 New Cases

There has been a slight potential increase in the Covid-19 reproductive rate, according to Health Minister Simon Harris.
Last week, the reproduction number was between 0.4 and 0.5. while the previous week, it had been between 0.4 and 0.6. However, the number still remains below 1, and that means the growth of the virus is still being slowly suppressed.

The total number of Covid-19 virus cases confirmed here in Co. Tipperary; as of midnight on Tuesday, June 2nd last, is recorded at 540, with 1 new case notified within a 24 hours period.

The Department of Health has confirmed this evening that a further 5 person have sadly passed away from the Corona-19 virus here in the Republic of Ireland, over the past 24 hours. These latest figures leave the total number of deaths caused by this pandemic currently at 1,664.

This evening, it has also been confirmed that an additional 38 new cases of the virus have been identified, bringing the total since conception, here in the Republic of Ireland, to 25,142.

Dublin has the highest number of cases at 12,093 (48%) followed by Cork with 1,517 cases (6%) and then Kildare with 1,419 cases (6%). The National Public Health Emergency Team will meet tomorrow to continue its review of Ireland’s overall response.

People are still being urged to continue the course ahead of the now expected second phase of Covid-19 restriction easing due next week.

Please Do Continue To Remain Safe.
