Twenty two new cases have been detected in Donegal in the past two weeks up to midnight Monday.
Health officials have today confirmed 164 new cases of Covid-19 in Ireland. There have been no new deaths and no new cases in Donegal today.
Dr. Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said:
“We have seen a significant number of cases in Dublin, Kildare, Tipperary, Limerick, Cork and Carlow over the past number of days. I would urge people everywhere to follow the public health advice and reduce mixing of households where at all possible.
“As we head into Autumn when people are more likely to have cold or ‘flu-like symptoms please do not adopt a wait and see approach. The greatest protection you can give your family and friends is to isolate as soon as you have any symptoms and contact your GP by phone. Remember, there should be no charge for either a consultation with your GP nor for a COVID-19 test should you require one.”
