Coronavirus: 1 death and 17 new COVID-19 cases in Republic

One more person has died after being diagnosed with Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland, the NPHET has said.

A further 17 people have also tested positive for the disease, taking the total number of cases in the State to 25,819.

There has been no increase in the number of coronavirus cases in Galway, according to the latest figures available.

The county has 1.9% of the total cases in the Republic.

Dr. Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, said: “I appreciate how difficult it is for people to limit their social activities and to physically distance from friends and loved ones.

“These actions are vital to our collective effort to suppress this highly infectious disease as we work towards reopening our schools and our healthcare services, and to protect our healthcare workers who have been at the frontline of this pandemic over the past six months.”
