Incident Rates In Wicklow Relatively Low Compared To The Rest Of The Country

Ballyjamesduff in Cavan has the highest 14-day Covid-19 incidence rate per 100,000 than any other local constituency in the country with a rate of over 651. The figures apply to the 29th of September to the 12 of October.

24 cases were recorded in Bray West during the two week period, while Bray East had 36 cases. Both the Greystones and Wicklow electoral areas  had 17 cases each, with 14 cases identified in the Arklow constituency. The 14 day period also showed 27 cases in the Baltinglass electoral area. Those figures combined give Wicklow a total incidence rate of 177

There are concerns about the situation in cities with Cork South-Central and Galway City Central both having rates of more than 550. Gorey in county Wexford has seen a rise of over 400 percent in the past week to have a rate of 533.
