LATEST: 95 more cases of virus, new infections recorded in Kilkenny, 1,000 a day fail to turn up for Covid tests

There has been no new coronavirus related deaths but 95 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed this evening.

The overall death toll as a result of the virus remains at 1,777. There are now 29,206 confirmed cases of Covid-19 across the country.

Kilkenny is among the counties where new infections have been recorded, according to the latest daily briefing from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).

The latest cases were confirmed as the health authorities confirmed as many as 1,000 people a day are failing to turn up for their Covid tests.

Around 25% of people who have been scheduled for Covid-19 tests do not show up, according to the head of the Health Service Executive (HSE).

HSE chief executive Paul Reid also confirmed labs processed almost 62,000 tests across 46 labs last week. The average positivity rate was 1.3%.

Mr Reid also said serial testing in meat processing plants has started in Kildare, Offaly and Laois and will extend countrywide and will include other food plants.

At a briefing today, Mr Reid also urged people to give their correct details as a wrong phone number can mean they cannot get information out to people for results or for contact tracing.
