Wexford has seen a rising number of Covid-19 cases for the month of August…
New data revealed that Wexford had the fifth highest number of newly-confirmed coronavirus cases in Ireland for the previous two weeks. Unfortunately, it’s not a good start for the first day of September either as a worrying trend of rising Covid-19 cases continues.
Acting chief-medical officer Ronan Glynn noted in a press conference on Monday that Wexford should be extra-cautious due to the county’s rising Covid-19 cases.
Following today’s statement from NPHET and the Department of Health, it has now been revealed that 217 new Covid-19 cases were confirmed across the Republic of Ireland.
Wexford was once again named in today’s statement — but notably, there will be less than five new Covid-19 cases added to Wexford’s numbers, which will be reflected in tomorrow’s county-by-county table.
Thankfully, no deaths have been reported in today’s statement.
Of the cases notified today:
103 are men and 113 are women
70% are under 45 years of age
51% are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
19 cases have been identified as community transmission
103 are in Dublin, 25 in Kildare, 17 in Limerick, 17 in Tipperary, 7 in Waterford, 7 in Wicklow, 6 in Clare, 5 in Louth and the remaining 30 are located in Carlow, Cavan, Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kilkenny, Meath, Monaghan, Offaly, Roscommon, Westmeath and Wexford.
Again, we’d like to wish those impacted a speedy recovery.
