Clare has recorded an increase in new COVID-19 cases for the second day in a row.

Once again, the amount is less than five but has not been specified. Across the country, there are 127 new confirmed cases. They are located in Dublin (52), Monaghan (13), Tipperary (9), Meath (8), Wexford (8) and Roscommon (8). Clare is among 15 counties where a further 29 cases are attributed to the remainder include Carlow, Cavan, Cork, Galway, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Limerick, Longford, Louth, Offaly, Waterford, Westmeath and Wicklow.

Of the new cases, 80 percent are under the age of 45, 8 are as a result of community transmission while 66 are associated with an outbreak or close contact with a confirmed case. In total, 28,578 persons have been diagnosed with Coronavirus in the country since March. No new deaths have been recorded, 1,777 people have died since the emergence of the virus on the island.

Four new cases were recorded in Clare on Wednesday. 455 people in total have tested positive for the virus across the county.

A rise in hospital admissions needs to be prevented, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn stated. “While the number of people in critical care remains stable we have seen an additional 8 people hospitalised in the last 24 hours. If cases continue to rise we will see an inevitable increase in the number of people hospitalised. We all have a role to play in preventing that from happening. This weekend it is vital that people play their part by decreasing social contacts. Do not drop your guard just because you are meeting people close to you. Remember that just because somebody looks and feels well, that does not mean they are COVID free.”
