There have been a further 922 cases of Covid across Ireland today with 38 of those in Donegal.
The breakdown of cases showed that 337 of the cases are in Dublin, with 73 in Cork, 70 in Limerick, 56 in Wexford, and 43 in Galway with the remaining 343 cases are spread across all other counties.
There are no “encouraging signs” among the key indicators of Covid-19, the Chief Medical Officer has said.
To date, there have been 2,192 Covid-19 related deaths in Ireland, and a total of 83,073 confirmed cases.
Dr Holohan added that unfortunately none of the indicators of the disease are showing encouraging signs.
“Ireland now has the fastest growing incidence rate in the European Union,” Dr Tony Holohan has said.
He said “the best present” people can give their loved ones this Christmas is to strictly adhere to the public health advice.
“Make your Christmas safe, meaningful and memorable for the right reasons. Stay home, stay safe and stay well. Limit contact as much as you can and ensure you and your loved ones have a happy and safe Christmas.”Tags:
