DONEGAL’S 14-day Covid-19 incidence rate has moved up to 122.5 overnight.
The new figure is an increase of 16.3 and Donegal is second behind Dublin, where the rate is 140.3.
Nationally, the incidence rate has increased to 73.9 per 100,000 people.
In the last seven days, Donegal has had 126 new cases of Covid-19 with thirty yesterday alone.
The latest figures from the Department of Health this evening mean there have now been 195 cases of Covid-19 detected in Donegal within the last 14 days.
The Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn, said: “Over one and three cases in Donegal are in people aged 15 to 24 years of age.
“There are a large number of family and extended family outbreaks.
“So it really is important in the counties that I’ve listed, but I think Donegal in particular, that people pay heed to the advice and cut down their social contacts.
“It’s Donegal today. It will be another county tomorrow and another the day after.”
