Dr. Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said;
“While we are seeing a continued increase in cases, particularly in Dublin, this is at least partly due to the willingness of people to heed our core messages around knowing the symptoms and coming forward promptly for testing."
"This together with all of the other key behaviours will help to break the chains of transmission in our communities."
“This weekend, please limit your social contacts, especially visitors to your home. Avoid crowds, keep your distance from others and wear a face covering where appropriate.”
The HSE is working to identify any contacts the patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.
