Dublin records just FOUR new cases of Covid-19 in last 24 hours

THERE have been just four new recorded cases of coronavirus in Dublin over the last 24 hours, according to the latest figures.

Dublin has been the epicentre of the virus in Ireland ever since the outbreak of the pandemic, with almost 50% of all confirmed cases emanating from the nation's capital, though the spread appears to be slowing rapidly.

Adding to the positive news, it's been revealed that as many as 23 counties in Ireland reported zero new cases of Covid-19 over the same period.

"On Sunday, more than 183,000 new cases of Covid-19 were reported globally, the most in a single day according to the WHO," said Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health.

"In Ireland, in the last 14 days, over a third of new confirmed cases are in young people under the age of 35.

"This is not a disease that solely affects older people. No one is immune, everyone is responsible for limiting the spread of Covid-19."

1,717 people have died from the disease here in Ireland.
