THE DEPARTMENT OF Health has confirmed that a further three patients diagnosed with Covid-19 have died and there are 10 new cases of the disease in Ireland.

The figures were released by the Department this evening. 

It means that a total of 1,720 people have died with the disease in this country and that there has been 25,391 cases.

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

As of midnight on Monday, 404,989 tests have been carried out.

Over the past week, 18,368 tests were carried out and of those, some 97 tests were positive, giving a positivity rate of 0.5%.

At present, there are 12 cases in ICU and 40 confirmed cases in hospital overall. 

In a statment, CMO Dr Tony Holohan said; “While we now have a robust testing system in place, the success of this system is dependent on people isolating and coming forward to their GP as soon as they experience symptoms.
