Bad News As Wexford Sees Huge Increase Of 15 New And Confirmed Covid-19 Cases

Wexford saw a huge increase of Covid-19 cases today…

307 new confirmed Covid-19 cases were confirmed in the Republic of Ireland today .

Unfortunately, the Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been informed that 1 person with COVID-19 has died.

Of the cases notified today:

160 are men / 146 are women

73% are under 45 years of age

64% are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case

72 cases have been identified as community transmission

182 in Dublin, 25 in Kildare, 19 in Limerick, 15 in Wexford, 15 in Louth, 8 in Wicklow, 6 in Galway, 6 in Clare, 6 in Kilkenny and the remaining 25 cases are located in Cavan, Cork, Donegal, Kerry, Longford, Meath, Monaghan, Offaly, Sligo, Tipperary, Waterford, Westmeath.

The Department of Health have not released any additional information about the location of these new Covid-19 cases in Wexford.

With today’s figures accounted for, Wexford now have a total of 326 Covid-19 cases since the start of the pandemic.

Per-capita, Wexford still has the second lowest number of Covid-19 cases in the Republic of Ireland — but the rising cases should certainly act as a concern.

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.
