Second day with no Covid-19 deaths in Ireland

No new deaths to Covid-19 have been reported in Ireland today, making it the first time there have been no deaths in two consective days since March.

The number people who have passed away in Ireland due to Covid-19 remains at 1,741.

However, four new cases have been confirmed in Ireland, bringing the total number of cases to 25,531.


The HSE is working to identify any contacts patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to stop further spreading.

De Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said he was concerned by reports of crowds not observing social distancing guidelines outside a number of pubs in Dublin over the weekend.

He is urging people to take up offers of tests.

“If an environment does not feel safe, or it means you are unable to follow public health advice, do not risk it and go elsewhere.”

He said between mid-May to the end of June, 35 per cent of those identified as a close contact of a confirmed case did not take up the offer of a test.

“Every case has the potential to turn into a cluster, which in turn has the potential to spread through a community. If you are identified as a close contact, please take up the offier of a test without delay.”
