No new Covid-19 deaths, 11 new cases confirmed

The latest figures have been released.

No new Covid-19 deaths were recorded by the Department of Health in the past 24 hours, though there has been 11 new cases of the virus confirmed.

This brings the total number of confirmed deaths from the virus in the Republic of Ireland to 1,746.

It also brings the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 25,638.

Data released by the Department of Health on Monday evening showed that 26 per cent of people say they wear a face covering every time they are shopping.

However, 81 per cent of people who use public transport say they wear a face mask every time.

It was also confirmed that international travel is also under review, with new measures on international travel into Ireland expected to be announced next week.

Speaking about potentially making quarantine compulsory for those arriving into Ireland, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn said that "mandatory quarantine would be a desirable measure", but that the government has a number of things to take into consideration.

This comes on the same day that Professor of Biochemistry at Trinity College called the arrival of tourists from the worst-hit Covid-19 states in the United States “outrageous” and “disgraceful”.
