Three more COVID-19 patients have died and six new cases have been confirmed.

It takes the death toll in Ireland to 1,738 and the number of confirmed cases to 25,477.

Health officials said one previously announced death and two previously confirmed cases have been denotified.

It comes amid increasing confusion over whether people should be travelling abroad.

The Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has said he is beyond nervous" about any increase in foreign travel, and has urged people to reconsider any summer holidays they have booked.

However, the Government is planning to release a 'green list' of countries deemed safe to travel.

In a statement this evening Dr Holohan said: “The National Public Health Emergency Team continues to advise against all non-essential travel.

“The WHO has warned that the global pandemic is accelerating. In the past week, over 160,000 cases have been reported each day.”

He said the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) will meet again tomorrow as it continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19 nationally and internationally.

The Deputy Chief Medical Officer warned that last month a total of 31 cases of COVID-19 in Ireland were associated with travel.

"The balance of keeping the disease suppressed in Ireland will continue to be challenging as society and business reopens," he said.

He noted that Public Health Advice is available at gov.ie/health and hse.ie.”
