COVID-19: 465 new confirmed cases in Ireland

Health officials have confirmed a further 465 cases of Covid-19 in Ireland.

Relative data regarding deaths associated with the virus and the county breakdown of cases has been affected by the cyber attack on the HSE.


The Department of Health confirmed that there are currently 84 people in hospital who have Covid-19, 30 of these patients are in intensive care units.

Yesterday, there were 93 patients in hospital with Covid-19, 34 of these patients were in ICU.

The new figures come as the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) found the period of presumptive immunity following Covid-19 infection is nine months.


Originally, the presumptive immunity was six months after infection.

Yesterday, the Government also voted in favour of extending Covid-19 emergency powers until at least November. This allows the continuation of restrictions on travel and social gatherings if needed.
