The HSE is working to identify any contacts the patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.

57% are female and 43% are male;

the median age of confirmed cases is 48 years;

3,276 cases (13%) have been hospitalised;

Of those hospitalised, 416 cases have been admitted to ICU;

8,123 cases are associated with healthcare workers;

Dublin has the highest number of cases at 12,179 (48% of all cases) followed by Cork with 1,533 cases (6%) and then Kildare with 1,426 cases (6%);

Of those for whom transmission status is known: community transmission accounts for 37%, close contact accounts for 60%, travel abroad accounts for 2%.

Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health, said; “Today’s increase in notifications of COVID-19 is not an increase in the daily incidence of the disease. When the cases are analysed according to the date the samples were taken, it shows that they were spread out over a number of days. All the indicators of the disease are stable or reducing. We will continue to closely monitor these every day”.
