Covid-19 Update: Sat. 15th Aug. 2020 – Zero New Deaths – 200 New Cases

Thirteen newly confirmed Covid-19 virus cases in Co. Tipperary

“Keep fighting hard against Covid-19 virus”

This evening, the Department of Health has confirmed that there have been zero new deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll here in the Republic of Ireland remaining at 1,774.

However, there are 200 new additional cases reported to the Department of Health, leaving the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception in the Irish Republic, at 27,191.

Of today’s new cases; 103 are men and 96 are women, with 68% under the age of 45 years.

Of the newly confirmed cases; 13 are in Co. Tipperary; 56 are in Co. Dublin; 81 in Co. Kildare; 8 in Co. Limerick; 6 in Co. Laois; 6 in Co. Galway; 5 in Co. Kilkenny; 5 in Co. Meath; with the remainder 20 cases located in counties Carlow, Clare, Cork, Donegal, Louth, Mayo, Offaly, Roscommon, Waterford, Wicklow.

People are not behaving as asked and this evening’s figures are being viewed as extremly disturbing.

Perhaps now the time has come to name immediately the localised areas where new clusters are being formed; in the interests of the health and safety of vulnerable people.

People aware of large party gathering in public areas and private houses should be encouraged to immediately notify Gardaí.

Meanwhile, an agreement between the Health Service Executive and the Irish Medical Organisation to provide for free GP assessments and tests for Covid-19 has been extended for another week.


Please behave and try to do as asked with regards to social distancing
