Carlow has country’s second highest Covid-19 incidence rate, while Kilkenny is fourth lowest

Limerick has the country's highest figures

131 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in Carlow and Kilkenny in the first two weeks of this month.

Local figures had not been available recently due to the cyberattack on the HSE computer systems.

But the latest information from NPHET shows 98 new cases in Carlow between the end of May and the 13th of June.

It means it now has the second-highest 14-day incidence rate in the country with 172 per 100,000 people.

Limerick is the only one worse for Coronavirus infections with 418 cases per 100,000.

Kilkenny’s infection rate is the 4th best in Ireland with 33 per 100,000 after 33 cases registered in June.
