Clare has recorded a further increase in the amount of COVID-19 cases in the county.

It is one among seven counties where 12 of the 42 cases announced on Sunday are located. Dublin (24) and Limerick (6) account for the bulk of cases with the remainder split between Clare, Carlow, Galway, Kildare, Longford, Offaly and Sligo.

Although no exact figure has been given, it is less than five. Recent breakdowns have revealed that Clare has recorded increases of 4 (Wednesday), 2 (Thursday) and 4 (Friday) cases per day.

Almost three quarters (71%) of the cases reported today occurred in people under the age of 45. 6 are as a result of community transmission while 5 are due to close contact with a confirmed case or an outbreak.

No new deaths have been reported to the Department of Health. 1,777 people have died since COVID-19 was first diagnosed in the Republic of Ireland six months ago.
