COVID-19: 1,189 new cases confirmed in Ireland

According to public health officials, there have been 1,189 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed in the country.

It has been reported by the Department of Health that there are currently 95 patients in hospital with Covid-19, with 23 receiving treatment in ICU.


The death rate has not yet been made available as it’s understood that this data was affected by the cyber attack on the HSE IT systems.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ronan Glynn stated that there has been a sharp increase in the number of travel-related Covid-19 cases as non-essential international travel reopened on Monday.

In relation to international travel, Glynn stated that only those who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19 in the last 180 days should only be considering international travel at this time.


Glynn has urged anyone who displays symptoms of Covid-19 after returning to Ireland, to self-isolate and get tested immediately.
