Ireland is one of four EU countries where Covid-19 7-day incidence rate is lower

Ireland is one of only four countries in Europe where the seven-day incidence rate of Covid-19 has decreased compared to last week, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organization. 

The National Public Health Emergency Team has said Ireland’s progress is encouraging but fragile, and effort is needed to make it last.

The weekly figures from the WHO show the seven-day rate here decreased by 36% this week.

There is an overall decline in case numbers, the reproduction number now stands at around one, and confirmed cases now have fewer close contacts.
