The Department of Health has been notified of one new death related to Covid-19 and 85 additional confirmed cases.

There have now been a total of 1,763 deaths in Ireland and 26,027 confirmed cases.

53 of the infections reported today are among men, with 32 among women.

68% of the cases are under 45 years of age. 39% are associated with close contacts of a confirmed case.

Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said that at least 18 of the cases reported today are associated with an outbreak at a factory in Co Kildare. The factory is closed and outbreak control teams are in place.

He said a number of the workers are living in Direction Provision centres. All of the workers have been tested.

In a statement tonight, Irish Dog Foods said it has been informed that a number of its employees in Naas have tested positive for Covid-19.

It said: "The individuals involved are now self-isolating and we remain in contact with them to ensure they have the support they require.

"We are working closely with the HSE and will continue to follow their advice at all times in how we manage this issue.

"In consultation with the HSE, we have closed the facility in question to enable a deep cleaning to be carried out.

"Staff well-being and safety is paramount for our company and we have a full range of measures in place including appropriate PPE, enhanced cleaning and hygiene regimes, social distancing measures, temperature screening and regular staff health and hygiene training and communications to help combat the virus."

Dr Glynn said a small number of cases reported today are associated with the construction industry, and there are four clusters in private households and extended families.

Keep the COV 19 fear porn churning.
If you have a cold you will test positive.
Now that the deaths have declined the new tactic is number of cases from a dubious test protocol. but the gullible idiots will believe any old garbage.
