Increase In Coronavirus Cases In 15 To 24 Year Old Group

Health officials will meet today amid growing concerns over the rise in coronavirus cases in a number of counties.

The National Public Health Emergency Team is particularly concerned about Louth, Waterford and Donegal - where a third of recent cases are among 15 to 24 year olds.
234 cases were identified yesterday with a further two deaths. 13 cases were recorded in Wicklow.
Acting Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn says we should all choose a small number of people to socialise with in the coming weeks

NPHET also says there's a "worrying" number of people being admitted to intensive care with Covid 19.
1 to 2 new admissions are being seen every day, and a rising number are under the age of 45.
