Two more deaths related to COVID-19 have been confirmed, 1,783 people have died as a result of the virus in the Republic of Ireland.

“47% of the cases reported today are in Dublin City and County. For the people of Dublin in particular, this is a critical moment to address the spread of the disease in the community. Individual choices can make all the difference – reconsider your plans for the weekend, reduce the number of people that you meet and avoid social activities that involve large groups of people,” Dr Ronan Glynn outlined.

The Acting Chief Medical Officer added, “COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease that can spread even when you have no symptoms. Remember, when you do meet with friends, family and colleagues, staying 2m apart is the best way to keep everyone safe”.

Data of Thursday’s cases shows that Clare had an increase of three new cases.
