32 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed, no new deaths

This is the highest number of new cases confirmed in over a month.

32 new caes of Covid-19 have been confirmed in Ireland, representing the highest number of new cases in Ireland in over a month.

However, no new deaths were recorded in the past 24 hours.

As of Tuesday (14 July), there has been a total of 1,746 related deaths in Ireland, while there has been a total of 25,670 confirmed cases of  Covid-19 in the Republic.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn has once again urged people who are feeling the relevant symptoms to assume they have Covid-19.  

"I would urge anyone experiencing symptoms to assume it is COVID19, in the first instance, until a GP or test tells you otherwise."

This update comes on the same day that Leo Varadkar said that he has not ruled out mandatory testing for people travelling to Ireland.

The Tánaiste said that he is not sure if mandatory testing is practicable, but he does think that it is something that Ireland needs to consider, amid a rise in Covid-19 cases associated with travel.
