Of the cases notified today:
The HSE is working to identify any contacts the patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.
Dr. Ronan Glynn, acting chief medical officer with the Department of Health, said: “Today we have at least 37 cases linked with community transmission. Twenty-seven of today’s cases are over the age of 65 years. By limiting our contacts, we limit the opportunity Covid-19 has to spread through the community and ultimately we protect our families, our communities and those who are most vulnerable to the severest impacts of the disease.”
