There have been two more deaths from coronavirus, the Department of Health has actually verified, together with 21 even more verified cases.
The death toll now stands at 1,753 people.
The Health Care Surveillance Centre states there have now been an overall of 25,750 verified cases of Covid-19 in Ireland.
One death and one case have been denotified, the centre stated.
The HSE stated it is working to determine any contacts the clients might have had to supply them with information and suggestions to avoid additional spread.
Performing Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “Arming ourselves with knowledge is the best defence we have against Covid-19
” Make certain you know the symptoms – cough, fever, shortness of breath, loss of smell/taste– and act rapidly in isolating and phoning your GP as early as possible if you experience them.
” Do not embrace a wait-and-see method.
” Once once again, we must each play our part in stemming the spread of Covid-19 in Ireland – follow the general public health advice, lower your social contacts, keep a range of two metres and plan to see others outdoors where possible, do not arrange or go to houseparty and wear a face covering when in stores or on public transport.
” Let’s not lose sight of our cumulative goal: to reduce Covid-19 in the community and thus protect our health, that of our liked ones, and that of the most vulnerable throughout our society.”
