Covid-19 Cases Increase In North Tipperary.

We had stopped reporting on daily Covid-19 cases here on Thurles.Info in the belief that we were over the worst and with our Tipperary economy beginning to reopen once again.

However, figures released yesterday by the Department of Public Health Mid-West shows that there was a rise in north Tipperary cases from 5 cases on Thursday last, to 11 cases on the following day, Friday.

Meanwhile, Tipperary’s neighbouring counties of Limerick and Clare also saw large increases.
In Co. Limerick Covid-19 cases increased to 78 on Friday, latter a rise of 34 over the preceding 24 hours, while 11 new cases were confirmed in Co. Clare over the same 24 hour period, bringing the total number of cases in this region to over 1,600 in the past month, including 950 new cases confirmed in the previous 14 days.

The above information comes on the back of news that the vaccination centre, based at Limerick Racecourse, Greenmount Park, Main St, Patrickswell, Co. Limerick, will close on four dates in June and July, to facilitate race meetings.

The above figures comes also as concerns continue to be raised regarding the Delta variant and how it may affect Ireland’s reopening plans.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Mr Simon Coveney has warned that tighter travel restrictions between Ireland and the UK, may be required to halt the spread of the Delta variant here in the Irish Republic.

Please do continue to wear face coverings and to socially distance. The latter has proven to have significantly limited the spread of COVID-19.
