Ireland Has Highest Rate Of Covid-19 In EU

Ireland has the highest rate of Covid-19 in the European Union.

Tomas Ryan, Associate Professor in Trinity College says health authorities need to examine why the rate remains so high. 

The Republic's 14-day rate is just over 500 cases per 100,000 people, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

That's just ahead of Cyprus, which has a rate of 496.

Yesterday the Department of Health confirmed a further 1,751 new cases.
