Two deaths and 54 new cases as UK plans widespread testing of population

There were two deaths from Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland in the last 24 hours, the HSE said this evening.

The total death toll here is now 1,775 while the number of confirmed cases has now reached 27,547 after another 54 were diagnosed.

Of the cases notified today:

  • 24 are men / 29 are women
  • 67% are under 45 years of age
  • 27 are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case
  • Eight cases have been identified as community transmission
  • 19 in Dublin, 8 in Kildare, 5 in Tipperary and the rest of the cases are in Carlow, Clare, Donegal, Kerry, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Waterford and Wexford.

Meanwhile, the British has announced that it plans to introduce population-wide Covid-19 testing to suppress its spread and ease restrictions that have damaged its economy.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said health authorities were trialing faster tests that can give results instantly which it hoped to introduce towards the end of the year.

“The mass testing, population testing, where we make it the norm that people get tested regularly, allowing us therefore to allow some of the freedoms back, is a huge project in government right now,” Mr Hancock said.
