No New COVID-19 Cases In Clare; Worrying Rise In Cases Nationally

There have been no new deaths reported to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre today.

The total number of COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland is 1,735.

While this is welcome news it comes with a worrying rise in cases as the HPSC has been notified of 24 new cases of the virus.


All but one of these cases has been registered in Dublin.

The total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country is now 25,462 after one case has been denotified.

Clare’s total stands at 369.

Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said: “We are starting to see a worrying trend, with the number of reported cases increasing, and some new clusters.

 “As restrictions are lifted and people move about more, it’s important that we use the tools that have helped us suppress the virus to date.

 “Handwashing, physical distancing, cough/sneeze hygiene and wearing face coverings are important personal behaviours that mean, as we go about our daily lives, that we are doing everything we can to avoid contracting the virus and spreading it to those we love.”
