    Mayo's 14-day rate is now at 214 per 100,000 people.

  • Covid-19 figures are continuing to fall across Connacht.

    Nationally, 2 further deaths were reported yesterday evening from the virus, with 542 confirmed cases.

    This includes 8 new cases in Sligo, 7 in Galway, 5 in Mayo and less than 5 in both Roscommon and Leitrim. This followed 26 new cases in Mayo reported on both Friday and Saturday evenings.

  • There have been no new deaths reported today from Covid-19, but 92 more confirmed cases of the cases.

    This brings the number of confirmed cases here to over 28,200.

    Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn says that, while the number of cases reported each day remains high, the situation nationally has remained relatively stable over the past week.

    However, we have seen cases of the virus in 25 of the 26 counties over the past two weeks.


  • The Government's new medium-term plan to deal with Covid-19 will aim to get Ireland into a 'status blue' period where the virus is surpressed.

    The Irish Times reports the plan, which was agreed at a Cabinet sub-committee yesterday, will see colour-coded statuses given to areas, depending on their levels of coronavirus.

    However a blue status will only come into effect when vaccinations or treatments are available.

    Meanwhile NPHET will discuss the recent spike in the midlands, and the clusters in meat factories at a meeting later.

    It's also likely to discuss the government's plans to ban non-essential travel from countries with high rates of the virus.


    Meanwhile, no new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed across Connacht over the past 24 hours.

    While one further death and 35 confirmed cases were announced nationally yesterday evening, none of the new cases were across the West.

    In Mayo, the number of confirmed cases is unchanged since last Friday at 584.

    There are 501 cases in Galway, with the last new case confirmed on Sunday.

    Roscommon has 347 confirmed cases, with 153 in Sligo and 58 in Leitrim.





  • The Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan says a 'worrying trend' of new clusters of Covid-19 is developing in Ireland.

    The Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn has once again urged people to halve the number of contacts this week, saying everyone of us doing our bit matters a great deal.




  • 35 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed to the National Public Health Emergency Team today.

    While one more person has died with the disease, meaning the death toll stands at 1,772.

    The majority of today's cases, 24 in total, have been linked to known outbreaks or are close contacts of another confirmed case.

    Just five have been identified as community transmission.

    Carlow is the county with the highest number of cases today with 6.

    It's followed by Clare which has reported five.

    The remaining 24 cases are spread across ten counties - none in Connacht.

    Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan says today marks 6 months since the World Health Organisation first received reports of Covid-19, and since then there have been some 10 million cases and 500,000 deaths reported worldwide.

    He says it's very important that we keep up the national effort to reduce the impact of the disease in this country.
