Coronavirus Ireland county-by-county: Three counties hit by big jump in cases over last 24 hours


Three counties were hit by a big jump in coronavirus cases over the last 24 hours, new statistics show.

Clare reported 11 further infections, adding to the 8 new cases announced on Wednesday.

While Laois, which has seen less than 300 cases in total since the outbreak began, recorded 9 new cases.

Limerick also saw a noticeable increase of 7 confirmed Covid-19 infections.

Finally Kildare recorded a staggering 29 further cases, by far the most of any county in Ireland over the last 24 hours.



Latest Department of Health breakdown on coronavirus cases.

The latest data released by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre covers the period up to midnight on Wednesday, July 29.

It comes after the Department of Health announced this evening that 38 new cases of the disease had been confirmed here.

It brings the total number of infections in Ireland to 26,065 since the pandemic began.

Thankfully, no further deaths were reported over the last 24 hours.

However Dr Glynn revealed a new survey of GP’s has indicated that the vast majority of patients who had contacted them with Covid-like symptoms in the past week had not been self-isolating since the onset of their symptoms.

And this Bank Holiday weekend he is calling on the Irish public to adhere to the six key guidelines to avoid transmission of the virus.

He said: “The importance of isolating as soon as you have any flu like symptoms cannot be overstated.



“Without this individual action we simply will not break the chains of transmission and we will put many people at risk of infection.

“It is important that people know that there is no charge for GP or testing services relating to COVID-19. Please do not hesitate to contact your GP if you have any concerns.

“This weekend, the six key things people need to do are limit the size of your network & time you spend with them, keep your distance, meet up outside if possible, wash your hands, wear a face covering and download the COVID Tracker App.”
