Covid-19 continues to spread across Donegal, with an average of 23 cases confirmed daily.
There were 282 new cases in the county in the past fortnight between 25th May and 7th June.
The Department of Health no longer reports daily case numbers following the cyber attack in May, but new figures from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre show that Donegal’s incidence rate is the second highest in the country at 177.1 cases per 100,000 people.
The five day moving average of cases in Donegal is 23.
Limerick now has the worst Covid-19 levels in Ireland, with a 14-day incidence rate of 449 per 100,000.
Health Minister Stephen Donnelly said the impact of Ireland’s COVID-19 vaccination programme continues to be seen, as outbreaks and clusters in older age cohorts have been “almost eliminated.”
