This may have went somewhat under the radar…
Following this evening’s announcement, ten new positive Covid-19 cases have been added to Wexford’s data.
The Government’s statement did not say if Wexford had any positive Covid-19 cases today, however, it did confirm that the HPSC has been notified of 432 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and one new death across the Republic of Ireland today.
Of the cases notified today:
218 are men / 214 are women
62% are under 45 years of age
48% are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
60 cases have been identified as community transmission
111 in Dublin, 51 in Donegal, 41 in Cork, 32 in Clare and the remaining 197 are located across 20 counties.
Previously, these statements released by the Department of Health and the Irish Government would reveal most — if not all — of the counties with positive coronavirus cases.
However, now it seems that they have changed their approach, and are only mentioning four counties with the highest number of cases.
We will know about today’s [Tuesday 6 October] cases tomorrow evening when we re-assess the ‘county-by-county’ table and when the new data is added.
The news of the additional ten Covid-19 cases in Wexford comes the same day that the whole Republic of Ireland is due to enter Level 3 Covid-19 restrictions.
