The figure for Donegal has increased by one, from 469 to 470. It is the first reported case of Covid-19 in Donegal since May 19. It is the fifth week in a row that Donegal, together with Laois and Kerry, has recorded less than ten new cases. Sligo and Waterford have fewer than 10 cases for the sixth week in a row.
Dr. Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; “Today’s increase in notifications of Covid-19 is not an increase in the daily incidence of the disease. When the cases are analysed according to the date the samples were taken, it shows that they were spread out over a number of days. All the indicators of the disease are stable or reducing. We will continue to closely monitor these every day.”
