Covid-19 figures

Two more people with Covid-19 have died, bringing the death toll to 1,740.

Latest figures show a further 9 cases of the virus have also been confirmed.

The updated figures this evening show there have been 25,498 confirmed cases since the virus first broke out here in late February.

They include a further 9 cases reported to public health officials today.

A further two people with Covid-19 have died, meaning the death toll stands at 1,740.

Acting Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ronan Glynn said Ireland’s 14 day incidence of COVID-19 is now less than three cases per 100,000- among the lowest in Europe.

He also defended the recording of deaths after today's HIQA’s report on mortality, which found excess deaths in Ireland from March to June were "substantially" less than the officially reported figures.

Dr Glynn said it demonstrates we have comprehensively recorded deaths by following the recommended World HO approach.
