The Chief Medical Officer's warning of the danger of a Brazilian variant of Covid-19 arriving in Ireland.
Dr Tony Holohan says new strains of the virus have been identified there, but there has been no case in Ireland so far.
However, he's asking anyone who has travelled from Brazil in the past two weeks to self-isolate and get tested.
50 deaths linked to Covid-19 were confirmed here yesterday, and 3,498 new cases.
In this region there are 187 new cases in Galway, 97 in Mayo, 32 in Roscommon, 21 in Sligo and five in Leitrim.
Former director-general of the HSE, Tony O'Brien, says he's worried about the threat of the Brazilian variant.
