Donegal’s Covid incidence rate has soared yet again.
The latest figure show the county is far and above anywhere in the country with an incidence rate of 218.6 per 100,00 people.
The figures, released by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre, show the rate up to September 30th.
Monaghan’s 14-day Covid-19 incidence rate has jumped by 32.6 to 166.2 per 100,000 while Dublin’s incidence rate has now hit 162.9.
The national incidence rate has risen to 96.3 per 100,000
Donegal, still holding the highest rate in the country, rose by 7.5 to 218.6 and two weeks into Level 3 restrictions, Dublin increased by 3.9 to 162.9
The figures come as the county remains in Phase 3 of the Government’s LIving with Covid plan which remain here until October 19th.
However, those rising figures will give cause for concern that not enough is being done by the public to reduce the figures and could lead to a continued lockdown.Tags:
