No New COVID-19 Deaths Recorded As Clare Figures Rise

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

There has now been a total of 1,772 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland.

Today the HPSC has been notified of 57 confirmed cases of the virus, bringing the total number of cases to 26,768.


Of the 57 cases, 19 are located in Kildare, 11 in Dublin, 10 in Offaly, 7 in Limerick, and the remaining 10 are spread across Clare, Cork, Galway, Kerry, and Wicklow.

It is not yet clear how many new cases there are in Clare.

Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; “People in Ireland coming together to support one another against COVID-19 has been the cornerstone of the national effort to date. While people in Kildare, Laois and Offaly are being asked to reduce their movements and social interactions, and some businesses are being asked to curtail their services, it is important that we remember that everyone across the country has a role to play in minimising the spread of this disease in our communities.”
