Seven new cases of COVID-19 have been diagnosed in Co Clare.

Health officials revealed on Tuesday evening that a daily increase of seven cases had been recorded in the county which is the third highest of all counties where cases have risen today.

Across the country there are 92 new cases. For the first time, Tipperary (31) tops the daily breakdown of cases followed by Dublin (7), Clare (7), Wexford (7) and Kildare (5). The remaining 25 are in Carlow, Cavan, Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kerry, Kilkenny, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Monaghan and Wicklow.

Detail on the cases has outlined that 69 percent are under the age of 45 while 46 are associated with an outbreak or close contacts of a confirmed case. Community transmission is identified as a cause for 11 of the new cases.

No increase in deaths has been reported leaving the death toll at 1,777.

Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn referenced the increase in Clare cases on Tuesday.
“While the number of cases reported each day remains high, the situation nationally has remained relatively stable over the past week. However, we have seen cases in 25 of the 26 counties over the past 14 days, including 473 cases in Dublin, 332 in Kildare, 120 in Tipperary, 84 in Limerick, 37 in Clare and 36 in Meath and Kilkenny.

“Measures introduced last week would not be expected to impact on the trajectory of the disease until early next week. In the meantime, we must continue to follow public health advice – reduce social contacts and avoid crowds, physically distance, wear face coverings and wash hands regularly,” he added.
