Covid-19 Update: Mon. 28th Sept. 2020 – Zero Deaths – 390 New Cases

Seven New Killer COVID-19 Virus Cases confirmed in Tipperary Today

This evening, figures from the Department of Health confirm that there have been, zero deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll here in the Republic of Ireland remaining at 1,802.

However, there are 390 new additional cases reported today, leaving the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception in the Irish Republic, at 35,377.

Of the cases confirmed in our republic today; 7 are in Co. Tipperary, with 209 in Co. Dublin.

In Northern Ireland, 220 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed bringing the total number of cases to 10,949, with no new deaths.

There are four counties here in the republic which are being examined very carefully; namely Cork, Galway, Louth and Wicklow, with regards to moving to Level 3 restrictions. Dublin and Donegal already have level three restrictions.

Restrictions on those travelling, entering into Ireland, are also most likely to remain in place until the middle of next year, an Taoiseach Mr Micheál Martin has stated.

The need for people to self-isolate on their arrival into our Republic, will most likely continue until well into next year and could be dependent on the development of a vaccine or at least better therapeutics, he confirmed.

Currently persons who travel to Ireland from Britain and other countries; with the exception of Cyprus, Finland, Latvia and Liechtenstein, must all agree to self-isolate for two weeks on their arrival here.


Please do make a special effort to stay safe by reducing social contacts; avoiding crowds;
physically distancing; while wearing face coverings and washing your hands regularly.
