There has now been a total of 1,763 Covid-19 related deaths in Ireland.
Dr. Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said it is important to keep going with precautions amidst the positive news; “COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease that is still circulating in our communities. It is a dangerous illness that no-one wants to catch.
“While we have reason to be positive, we now need to continue to work together towards our collective goal of resuming healthcare services, reopening our children’s schools, and protecting the most vulnerable.
“The past weeks have shown that when we maintain physical distance, wash our hands, wear a face cover where appropriate and cover our coughs and sneezes, together we can interrupt the spread of COVID-19. Let’s keep going.”
