Covid-19 Update: Sat. 27th June 2020 – 6 Deaths – 23 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 6 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 1,734.

This evening, it has also been confirmed that an additional 23 new cases of the virus have been identified, bringing the total since conception, here in the Republic of Ireland, to 25,437.

Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health Dr Tony Holohan has expressed serious concern about Irish people travelling abroad this year, fearing that many people were planning foreign trips abroad.

This year, in particular, Irish residents should be staying at home and spending locally in an effort to kickstart our own Irish economy and small businesses, while following basic public health advice. Now is the time for Tipperary Co. Council’s tourism department to waken up and begin promoting / highlighting tourism in what after all is the Premier County.

Time to resurrect that now long forgotten money wasting logo “Tipperary – The Place – The Time”.


Please make the effort to stay safe.
