LATEST: No further deaths and 14 new cases of virus, pandemic payment recipients now free to travel to ‘green list’ countries
There have been no further deaths, but 14 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed this evening.
It means the overall death toll as a result of the virus remains at 1,764. There are now 25,942 confirmed cases of Covid-19 across the country, according to the latest daily briefing from the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).
The number of cases in Kilkenny remains the same at 356, just one per cent of the overall total.
The latest national cases were confirmed as Government was forced to take another u-turn – this time in relation to the clampdown on people claiming the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP) found to be travelling abroad.
Earlier it was confirmed that around 2,500 PUP claims by people who were found to be travelling outside of the country have been stopped.
The Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys, told the Dáil more than 90% of these were people who were no longer resident in the country.
Following a backlash, Minister Humphreys confirmed she will sign a regulation that will allow people receiving the PUP and Jobseeker’s Allowance to travel to green list countries without having their payments halted.
The minister also said she has directed her department to review all cases so far where people who went on holiday had their payment stopped.
She admitted the Government could have communicated “more effectively” and said the cases of all those who have already travelled for holidays will be reviewed.

Am Lucy Morgan from Atlanta Georgia i was suffering from genital herpes, oral herpes, shingles. Before I came in contact with Dr. Kham, It is no longer news that the Acquired immune deficiency syndrome Herpes Virus is increasing by the day, The fear is that many people living with the sickness are scared of saying it because of the stigma that comes along with it. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world had crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could live a normal life if I took my medications, In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought solutions from the voodoo world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could sever, because I heard that the African Voodoo Priests had a cure for Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr. Kham website who offered to help me, He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Two days ago to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that ” I am NEGATIVE” You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Voodoo Priest via this EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org WHATSAPP NUMBER +2348159922297
