The number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Donegal has increased again.
There are now 320 confirmed cases in the county, an increase of 24 from the previous figure of 296.
Professor Philip Nolan, Chairman of the NPHET Epidemiological Modeling Advisory Group, said: “Our model now shows four reproductive numbers, illustrating the different stages of the disease in Ireland over the past 6 weeks.
“We now estimate that our R0 is between 0.7 and 1.0, which means that the current restrictions are successfully suppressing the disease.”
Dr. Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer of Health, Department of Health, said, “The data clearly shows that there are two very different experiences of COVID-19 in Ireland today. In the general population, the virus is contained and effectively suppressed.
