Three further deaths, six new cases of Covid-19 confirmed

The latest figures were provided on Wednesday evening.

Three more people in the Republic of Ireland have sadly died in relation to Covid-19.

Six new cases of the virus have also been confirmed.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn revealed on Wednesday that 31 of the confirmed cases of Covid-19 that were found in Ireland throughout the month of June, were said to be associated with foreign travel.

He said: "The efforts of everyone to adhere to public health advice, together with the dedication of those working across our health and public services, means that we are now among a small number of countries globally with a very low and decreasing incidence of Covid-19 .

"This should not be taken for granted; the virus is still out there and if given the opportunity transmission will increase again quickly."

Tony Holohan confirmed that NPHET will meet again on Thursday to monitor the spread of the virus and review the response and preparedness to the disease.

Following being called out publicly by Ryanair on Wednesday morning, Tony Holohan doubled down on the sentiment that non-essential travel should be avoided.

He said: "The National Public Health Emergency Team continues to advise against all non-essential travel."

In Northern Ireland, no further deaths linked to Covid-19 were recorded on Wednesday, with the toll there remaining at 551, according to the Department of Health.
