Two Galway areas see massive drop in COVID rates

There has been a decrease in the 14-day incidence rate of COVID-19 in every local electoral area in County Galway, new data released this evening has revealed.

Last week, Galway City Central LEA had the third highest 14-day Covid rate in the Republic. But the rate has roughly halved there in the past seven days, to just over 500 cases per 100,000 people.

A total of 137 new cases were reported in Galway City Central over the two weeks to 2nd November, whereas last week’s figure was 272.

The 14-day incidence rate in Conamara South LEA has also decreased dramatically by around a half to 346.8 cases per 100,000 – but this is still the second highest rate in the county.

There were 74 cases confirmed in the Conamara South electoral area over the past fortnight.

Elsewhere, Ballinasloe, Galway City West and Galway City East all have 14-day Covid rates higher than the national average – which was 228 at the time the data was recorded.

Athenry – Oranmore still has the lowest number of cases per 100,000 people in Galway. Just 36 people tested positive in the LEA over the past two weeks – fewer than three confirmed cases per day on average.

There were fewer than two cases per day on average in Conamara North where the incidence rate fell by 52 to 157.1 cases per 100,000 people.
