Total of five Covid-19 outbreaks associated with pubs throughout pandemic

There have only been five Covid-19 outbreaks in pubs since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the latest HSE data.

All five outbreaks are now closed cases.

There is a push within government to get pubs back open in October, with Tánaiste Leo Varadkar telling his party colleagues last night that publicans should be given a chance to show they can open safely.

Varadkar also said that he doesn’t know why Ireland should be the only country in Europe where pubs are not open.
