Wexford has seen a rising number of Covid-19 cases for the month of August while September is also off to a bad start Corona-wise…
Recently, acting Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn stated that Wexford is one of a number of counties that are on a watch-list, after the county experienced spikes in Covid-19 cases over the past number of weeks:
“In relation to Dublin, we’re keeping it under review, we keep the situation in all counties under review. But to a certain extent what we’re seeing in Dublin now is a reversion to the situation we would have seen earlier in the padnemic.”
“Obviously Dublin has a very significant population and so it’s not surprising we’re seeing more cases in Dublin than in other counties, but we will keep it closely under review.
“And it’s not just Dublin, we’ve seen 98 cases in Limerick over the past fortnight, 41 cases in Carlow, 47 cases in Wexford, we’re just sending the message out that there are a wide number of counties where we’re seeing significant substantial numbers of cases,” Glynn said in a press conference held on Monday.
Wexford had a total of 70 new confirmed Covid-19 cases for the month of August, the county’s highest monthly total since the heights of the pandemic.
Wexford seen an increase of four cases yesterday and an increase of two confirmed Covid-19 cases today.
Wexford was also named on the list of counties which will see an increase in tomorrow’s county-by-county figures.
We know that the figure will be less than six, but the figure will only be confirmed following the release of tomorrow’s statement from the Department of Health.
At the time of writing, 300 Covid-19 cases have been confirmed across County Wexford since the start of the pandemic — with this number increasing tomorrow.
Using national figures (recovered cases IRL /confirmed cases IRL – known county deaths), a ball-park figure would highlight that there’s approximately 38 active cases now in Wexford.
We must remember that this virus hasn’t gone away just yet. We should remain vigilant and should continue following the protocols that are still in place to reduce these spikes and numbers, so that we do not return to another lockdown.
