Coronavirus: 3 deaths in Republic, no new COVID cases reported in Galway

The National Public Health Emergency Team has confirmed that three more people have died after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Just six new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed today in the Republic, taking the total number of cases to 25,477.

Galway has not had any additional confirmed cases, and the total number of cases in the county remains 485.

Speaking today, Dr. Tony Holohan said that the NPHET is still advising against all non-essential travel.

“The WHO has warned that the global pandemic is accelerating. In the past week, over 160,000 cases have been reported each day,” he said.

“The National Public Health Emergency Team will meet again tomorrow as it continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 nationally and internationally, and review Ireland’s response and preparedness to the disease.”

Dr. Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer said; “In June, a total of 31 cases of COVID-19 in Ireland were associated with travel.

“The balance of keeping the disease suppressed in Ireland will continue to be challenging as society and business reopens. Public Health Advice remains available on gov.ie/health and hse.ie.”
