Of these, 6%, or 1,164 cases, have been discharged from hospital which means there has been a recovery rate of 70%.
Dr Kathleen MacLellan, Assistant Secretary Department of Health and Chair of NPHET Vulnerable People Subgroup, said: “Ireland remains one of the few countries globally who has collected and officially reported data from long term residential care settings from the start of the pandemic.
“From the end of March we have seen an increase in deaths in this sector that can be attributed to COVID-19.
“As we continue to collect and report mortality data coming from this sector we will have a greater understanding of the behaviour of the disease in this setting and it will help us to inform public health actions and clinical care.”
