Yesterday, eleven new coronavirus cases have been confirmed for County Wexford..
As of midnight Tuesday 4 August, the HPSC has been notified of 50 confirmed cases of COVID-19. There is now a total of 26,303 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.
Of the 50 cases notified yesterday:
-31 are men and 19 are women
-81% are under 45 years of age
-42 are associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
-4 cases have been identified as community transmission
Eleven of the 50 confirmed cases are located in Wexford, 10 in Kildare, 6 in Dublin, 5 in Donegal, and 18 are spread across nine other counties (Carlow, Cork, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Sligo, Tipperary and Wicklow).
As there are only four cases of ‘community transmission’ nationwide, it’s likely that the eleven new coronavirus cases are from a cluster from somewhere in Wexford. The HSE are yet to release this information to the general public.
Wexford have been doing well with regards to Coronavirus cases to date; the county still has one of the lowest numbers of cases in the county per-capita.
