‘Situation continues to improve in Ireland and Europe’

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been informed that a total of 9 people with Covid-19 have died.

There have now been a total 1,691* Covid-19 related deaths in Ireland.

As of midnight Monday 8 June the HPSC has been notified of 9 confirmed cases of Covid-19. There is now a total of 25,215** confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Ireland.


Dr. Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; “While today we report 9 new cases and the situation continues to improve in both Ireland and across Europe, the World Health Organisation has noted that now is not the time to ‘take the foot off the pedal’ and that countries need to continue to work hard to avoid complacency and promote solidarity.”

Dr. Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; “Contact tracing & public health surveillance are essential elements in our response to Covid-19. Public Health doctors and their teams have quietly undertaken an extraordinary effort to contact trace over 25,000 Covid-19 cases to date. Going forward, we can all assist them in their work by limiting the number of people we meet and keeping a log of the people we interact with every day.”
