1,414 New Cases Of COVID-19 In Ireland Today


A further 1,414 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.

As of today, the five-day moving average of new cases stands at 1,526.

Figures released this morning showed there were 353 patients with COVID-19 in Irish hospitals - an increase of ten compared to yesterday.

55 patients are in ICU - a decrease of four over the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, Europe-wide figures show Ireland now has the highest COVID-19 rate in the EU.

The 14-day rate now stands at just over 500 cases per 100,000 people, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

That is ahead of Cyprus at 496.1, Greece at 412.3 and France at 403.2.

Despite the high case figures here, there are 14 countries on the list reporting higher death rates than Ireland over the past two weeks.
