One case previously classified to Co Clare has been de-notified as it is now 20 days in succession without a new case of COVID-19.
Ireland’s continued response to the disease will be discussed at a meeting of the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) on Thursday morning. NPHET continue to advise against all non-essential travel. “The WHO has warned that the global pandemic is accelerating. In the past week, over 160,000 cases have been reported each day,” Dr Tony Holohan stated.
31 cases recorded in June were associated with travel, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn confirmed. “The balance of keeping the disease suppressed in Ireland will continue to be challenging as society and business reopens”.
