For the third day in succession, Co Clare has recorded an increase in COVID-19 cases.

Less than five further confirmed cases have been reported to the Department of Health in the county. Nationally 211 cases have been diagnosed, these are in Dublin (121), Louth (17), Limerick (10), Cork (8), Waterford (7), Wicklow (7), Laois (6), Donegal (5), Galway (5) and a total of 24 divided between Clare, Carlow, Kerry, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Longford, Mayo, Meath, Offaly, Roscommon, Tipperary, and Waterford.

Of the new cases, 42 are as a result of community transmission while 28% are associated with outbreaks or close contacts with a confirmed case.

An increase to the nation’s death toll has been recorded. Following confirmation of one death, it is now at 1,781.

“While we are seeing a continued increase in cases, particularly in Dublin, this is at least partly due to the willingness of people to heed our core messages around knowing the symptoms and coming forward promptly for testing. This together with all of the other key behaviours will help to break the chains of transmission in our communities,” Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn stated.
