12 new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Co Clare representing the biggest daily increase for the county so far in September.

Clare last recorded a bigger daily increase on June 1st when notification was issued of 37 new cases in the space of 24 hours. Ten new cases were recorded in a twenty four window on September 19th.

No new deaths have been reported to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre leaving the national death toll at 1,802.

An additional 430 confirmed cases have been notified to health authorities. This is the biggest rise nationally since April 26th.

212 cases are in Dublin, 54 in Cork, 23 in Donegal, 23 in Galway, 16 in Louth, 15 in Monaghan, 12 in Clare, 12 in Meath, 9 in Cavan, 8 in Roscommon, 7 in Wicklow, 6 in Limerick, 5 in Kildare, 5 in Tipperary with the remaining 23 cases in 9 counties.

In a statement, Dr Ronan Glynn stressed the need for social contacts to be reduced. “As we start into this new week, I am asking every household across the country to sit together this evening and make a plan to reduce the number of people you meet this week. We have absolutely no room for complacency. If every person, family, workplace and organisation does not play their part the situation will continue to deteriorate”.

“For people who live in Donegal and Dublin remember Government advice is to work from home unless it is essential to attend in person. For people living in these and all other counties, assume that COVID-19 is circulating in your community and act accordingly,” the Acting Chief Medical Officer stated.
