COVID-19: 360 new cases confirmed in Ireland

DUBLIN: The Department of Health has confirmed that 360 new COVID-19 cases have been recorded in Ireland.

The Department shared the latest figures on Twitter this evening, and it also confirmed that daily case numbers may alter due to future data validation.

Data on the number of people who have died from COVID-19, as well as case numbers by county, have not been published since the HSE and the Department of Health were subjected to a cyber-attack last Friday.

Currently, 110 COVID-19 patients are being treated in hospitals, of which 42 are in intensive care unit.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health said: “Daily positive swab results are currently being reported from laboratories to the HSE’s contact management programme while systems are down.

“The Health Protection Surveillance Centre are then reporting daily cases to the Department based on those daily positive lab results. Validation of these results will commence once systems back up and running.”
