11 Covid cases reported locally, as Chief Clinical Officer urges people to stay the course

866 people have tested positive nationwide- 6 of those are in Carlow, while 5 are in Kilkenny

11 more cases of covid-19 have been confirmed this evening.

866 people have tested positive nationwide- six of those are in Carlow, while five are in Kilkenny.

The latest figures from NPHET also report six additional Covid-related deaths.

60,297 have now been infected in total, while the virus has claimed 1,902 lives.

Today’s figure means fewer than a thousand new cases have been reported in six out of the last seven days.

But the HSE’s Chief Clinical Officer Colm Henry says there’s no room for complacency:

“There’s a theme emerging that is positive, some of the measures are starting to kick in. Rather than allow people to take things easier, this should be a measure to us all to stay the course because the measures are beginning to have an effect.”
