Two new killer COVID- 19 virus cases in Co. Tipperary; bringing our overall case numbers to 759.

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 1,792.

However, there are 188 new additional cases reported today, leaving the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception in the Irish Republic, at 32,121.

Of today’s confirmed cases; 2 are in Tipperary; 76 are in Dublin; 25 are in Cork; 21 are in Donegal; 16 in Kildare; 13 in Galway; 7 each in Roscommon and Waterford, with the remaining 21 cases spread across 11 other counties.

New figures from yesterday show a further rise in the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our hospitals and in our intensive care units with the latest overnight Health Service Executive figures indicating the number of confirmed cases in hospital at 88, with 16 of these patients in intensive care.

An Taoiseach Mr Micheal Martin has rightly come out against anti-mask marches that have occurred over the last couple of months, during the COVID-19 pandemic in Dublin city. Mr Martin has stated that the Government’s actions on these marches must successfully undermine some of the dangerous messages observed at these demonstrations, such as the denial of the dangers of COVID-19. He further stated that the state has to make sure that public health regulations are being fully adhered to in all circumstances, particularly in terms of these public protest marches.

Meanwhile, Ms Liz Canavan, (Assistant Secretary General at the Department of the Taoiseach) has warned that counties Wicklow, Waterford, Louth, Limerick, Kildare, Donegal and Offaly are now showing concerning increases of virus cases and she has urged the public to double their efforts in an effort to halt future spread of the killer virus.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control records Ireland’s 14-day coronavirus incidence rate at 66.6 per 100,000, thus ranking Ireland 15th out of the 31 countries listed.

COVID-19 virus cases confirmed today by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) shows global cases at over 31 million (31,104,646, an increase of 266,036 on yesterday) with associated global deaths sadly at almost 1 million (961,459, an increase of 3,369 on yesterday).
