    Meanwhile, the Taoiseach says a Covid 19 vaccine could be a wonderful Christmas present but we need to keep the virus under pressure for now.

    Michéal Martin says there could be authorisation from EU and US regulatory authorities for a vaccine by the second half of December.

    In the meantime, he's urging people to "double-down" on their efforts to suppress the virus.

    Mayo and Sligo continue to have 14-day rates above the national average.

  • People are being urged to reconsider their Christmas plans if they have been socialising in the past few weeks, after 764 more cases of Covid-19 were confirmed in the Republic last night along with 4 additional deaths from the virus.

    This includes 17 new cases in Galway, 14 in Sligo, 9 in Mayo and less than 5 in Roscommon and Leitrim.

    Mayo's 14-day rate is slightly higher at 116, while the other Connacht counties are all below the national average.

    Mayo has seen 152 new cases of the virus over the past 2 weeks - the highest figure in the province.

    Nationally, the infection rate among adults between 19 and 44 has more than doubled in the past 10 days.

    Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan says every indicator of the disease severity is moving in the wrong direction, more rapidly than anticipated, and they have strong concerns about the prospect of inter-generational mixing around the festive season.

  • 18 further deaths have been reported this evening from Covid-19.

    The Department of Health says 15 of the deaths occurred in November, 1 in October and 2 are under investigation.

    This includes 16 new cases in Galway, 9 in Mayo and less than 5 in both Roscommon and Sligo.

    The 14-day incidence rate of the virus nationally is now at 87 per 100,000 people.

  • 190 more cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed, and one further death.

    It means the number of people who've contracted the virus here stands at almost 27-thousand, five hundred.

    There are no new confirmed cases in Connacht this evening.

     

  • 196 new cases of Covid 19 have been confirmed in the Republic of Ireland this evening.

    37 of the new cases are linked to community transmission and 27 are people over the age of 65.

    That's something health officials are concerned about - with the number of new infections among older people almost doubling in the last 2 weeks.

    Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn has again urged people to limit their contacts in order to limit the opportunity for the virus to spread.

    He says this can help protect people's families, their communities and those who are most vulnerable.

  • There have been a further 242 Covid-19 cases  reported this evening, and no new deaths.

    76 of the latest cases are in Dublin.

    In this region, there were 16 new cases in Galway, 9 in Mayo, and less than 5 in both Roscommon and Sligo.

    The 14 day incidence rate per 100,000 people is now 80.4 - down from 89.2 this day last week.

  • The Chief Medical Officer has warned Ireland is now dealing with 'widespread' community transmission of Covid-19.

    Dr Tony Holohan says it has become 'a whole population issue' and has appealed to every individual, family, household and workplace to act on public health advice.

    It comes as three further deaths were confirmed last night, along with a further 811 new cases of the virus - spread across all counties.

    Cavan has overtaken Donegal as the newest hotspot, after 22 new cases gave it an incidence of over 412 cases per 100,000 in the last 14 days.

    There were 9 new cases in Mayo yesterday, 39 in Galway, 8 in Sligo and less than 5 in both Roscommon and Leitrim.

    In terms of the 14-day incidence rate of the virus in Connacht, Sligo has overtaken Roscommon and now has a rate of 187.

    Roscommon is at 182 cases per 100,000 people, Galway is next at 165, with Leitrim at 137 and Mayo remains the only Connacht county with a 14-day incidence rate of less than 100 - it's now at just over 80.

    Of today's cases, there are 189 in Dublin, with 60 in Cork, 31 in Donegal and 28 in Galway.

    The rest are spread across 19 different counties.

  • The Chief Medical Officer says the recent dip in Covid-19 figures can't yet be called a trend.

    Last night, 720 new cases were confirmed and 5 additional deaths.

    This includes 47 new cases in Galway, 23 in Mayo, 6 in Sligo and less than 5 in both Roscommon and Leitrim.

    The national incidence rate has fallen slightly from yesterday to 307 per 100,000 people.

    Sligo and Galway's 14-day incidence rates remain above the national average, and 439 and 385 respectively.

    Sligo currently has the third highest rate nationally, and Galway is 5th.

    Nationally, the total number of cases has stayed below 1,000 for four out of the last five days.

    However, Dr Tony Holohan says that, while there are some chinks of light, he insisted the country hasn't turned a corner yet in suppressing the spread of the disease:

  • 6 additional deaths have been reported from Covid-19, and a further 226 cases of the virus.

    The number of new cases across Connacht is low this evening- with 6 cases in Galway, less than 5 in Mayo, and no new cases reported in Roscommon, Sligo or Leitrim.

    The 14 day incidence rate of the virus per 100,000 people is now at 108 - down from 121 this day last week.

    While Roscommon has no new cases, the 14-day rate is still above the national average at 131 per 100,000, while Mayo is at 88.

     

     

  • Six deaths related to Covid-19 have been recorded in the Republic of Ireland today. 

    Another 23 cases have also been confirmed.

    It means there have been 1,743 deaths and 25,565 confirmed cases.

    The reproductive rate of the virus is now 'at or above one'.

  • 307 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed yesterday evening in the Republic of Ireland - the highest daily total since early May.

    This includes 6 new cases in Galway, 182 in Dublin,  25 in Kildare, 19 in Limerick, 15 in each of Wexford and Louth, with the remaining cases are spread across 16 different counties including Sligo.

    Health officials also confirmed one further death linked to the virus.

    A closer look at Connacht shows that, over the last 14 day period, there were an additional 31 cases confirmed in Galway, bringing the county's total to 540.

    16 additional cases brought Leitrim's total over 100 - but is still the lowest county in the country followed by Sligo which has recorded 2 more cases over the last fortnight to 158.

    Roscommon has confirmed 12 additional cases over 14 days, bringing the confirmed number to 365, while Mayo showed 6 additional cases over the 2 weeks, bringing the total to 593. 

  • 4,929 Covid cases have been confirmed this evening and 8 additional deaths. 

    In this region, there are 225 new cases in Galway, 185 in Mayo, 72 in Roscommon and 22 in Sligo.

    As of this afternoon, 1,582 patients are in hospital with 146 patients with the virus being treated in ICU. 

    Chair of NPHET's modelling group, Professor Philip Nolan, says there are indications trends are improving, while the Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has again stressed that the best way forward is for people to stay at home and cut their contacts right down to only those in their immediate household.

     

     

  • European regulators are planning to meet next Monday - which is earlier than planned - to discuss approval of the Pfizer vaccine.

    The Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says that could mean the initial rollout of vaccines starting here by the end of the year.

    But Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has warned people not to drop their guard just because a vaccine is on the way.

     

    It comes as a further 8 deaths and 329 new cases of the virus were recorded yesterday.

    This includes 9 new cases in Mayo, and less than 5 in counties Sligo, Galway and Roscommon.

    Mayo's 14-day incidence rate of the virus is at 108 per 100,000 people - higher than the national average of 84 per 100,000.

    All other Connacht counties have 14-day rates well below the national average.

  •  

    There are another 93 cases of Covid-19 in the Republic this evening, and no deaths.

    34 of the new cases are Dublin, 7 are in Kildare and the others are spread across 15 other counties.

    It brings the total number of cases to 28,453.

    The death toll remains at 1,777.

    The R number is now between 1 and 1.2 an improvement on what we've seen recently but still not where we want to be, according to Professor Philip Nolan.
