PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS have confirmed that 802 new cases of Covid-19 have been reported in the last two days.

There was a delay in reporting these cases numbers due to the cyber attack on the HSE IT system on Friday.

As of midnight on Friday, the HSPC was notified of 447 confirmed cases of Covid-19.

As of midnight on Saturday, the HSPC was notified of 355 confirmed cases.

The figures did not contain any information about whether there were any other deaths due to the virus.

Data relating to the number of deaths due to Covid-19, as well as case numbers by county, have been affected by last week’s cyber attack on Ireland’s health service.
