Clare GP Claims New Public Health Message For Young People Needed

A Clare GP claims the rise in the number of Covid 19 cases among our younger population is unsurprising.

The National Public Health Emergency Team is planning a new campaign targetting young people after a recent surge in cases among those under 45.

73 percent of cases of COVID-19 cases across the country in the last 2 weeks have been identified among those in that age profile.


50 new cases of Coronavirus were reported by the Department of Health last night, none of those in Clare, which means the county total remains at 399, though 19 cases have been reported here over the past week.

Kilmihil GP Dr Michael Harty believes there’s an urgent need for the public health message for young people to be amended :
