Irish people urged to be diligent this Bank Holiday weekend following yesterdays sharp rise in Covid-19 cases

HSE Paul Reid has asked people not to be scared but diligent this bank holiday weekend following a sharp increase in confirmed Covid-19 cases in Ireland yesterday.

Reid said the 85 new cases of Covid-19 reported yesterday are concerning but “it doesn’t need to be a trend”.

“The performance of this virus is all about what we do today. Enjoy your weekend, keep your distance, wear a mask. Don’t be scared…be diligent…be safe,” Reid tweeted.

A large amount of yesterdays cases were as a direct result of an outbreak at a factory in Kildare, which also led to a few cases in a Direct Provision Centre.
