Coronavirus: 75 new confirmed cases in Galway

Seventy-five new cases of Covid-19 have been reported by the Department of Health today, as well as 1,000 cases across the Republic.

Three more deaths related to the virus were also reported today by health officials.

Galway has the fifth highest number of new cases today after Dublin, Meath, Cork and Cavan.

Of today’s cases, 71% are under 45 years of age and the median age is 31 years.

“Case numbers are continuing to rise. Right now, we need everyone to cut their social contacts to an absolute minimum,” said Dr Tony Holohan this evening.

“Every time you physically interact with another person, you are providing an opportunity for the virus to spread.”
