Covid-19 Update: Mon. 24th Aug. 2020 – Zero New Deaths – 147 New Cases

Nine staff have tested positive for the Covid-19 virus at ABP’s meat processing facility situated in Cahir, Co Tipperary. ABP has also confirmed that 2 confirmed cases have been confirmed at their plant in Clones, Co. Monaghan.
A further 4 cases have also been confirmed at the Rosderra Irish Meats plant in Clara, Co. Offaly.

This evening, figures from the Department of Health confirm 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 1,777.

However, there are 147 new additional cases reported today, leaving the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception in the Irish Republic, at 28,116.

With 1,354 cases confirmed over the past 14 days; 91 or 7% were in Tipperary; 457 (34%) were in Dublin; 327 (24%) in Kildare; 82 (6%) in Limerick; 38 (3%) in Meath, 36 (3%) Offaly, and 35 (3%) in Laois.

Meanwhile, today some schools have reopened in Northern Ireland for the first time since March last, after months of disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Like the 26 county Republic; the government have confirmed that face coverings are not mandatory for routine use by pupils, and strict social distancing between children may be relaxed, where strict hygiene measures exist. There is now clear and unequivocal evidence that children are less likely to catch Covid-19; but if they do, most will have mild to moderate symptoms, thus making a very full recovery.

Remember do Stay Safe.
