1205 new Covid-19 cases confirmed, three new deaths

Prof. Gerry Killeen, AXA Research Chair in Applied Pathogen Ecology at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences at University College Cork said that a move to Level 5 would be the "right thing to do".

In outdoor settings away from a home or garden, up to six people from no more than two households can meet while maintaining strict social distancing - including for outdoor exercise and dining.

The comparative number of deaths reported daily by the Department of Health to October 9 was 587.

Commenting on the latest figures, Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health said: "Case numbers are continuing to rise".

The Irish government also made a decision to ban visits to private homes and outdoor gatherings of over six persons from more than two households in other parts of the country, which are now under a Level 3 response that prohibits people from non-essential domestic and global travels apart from a number of other restrictions.

This has happened before: the country is currently in "Level 3 plus plus" where all rules follow the Level 3 restrictions, but alcohol-only pubs follow Level 4 restrictions (outdoor seating only, limited to 15 people), and people can now not have visitors to their homes.

Counties Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan also moved to level four restrictions.

All the non-essential retail outlets and services will be closed.

The measures were introduced at midnight and will remain in place until November 10.

No more than 25 people can attend a funeral service and, as of Monday, a maximum of six people can attend a wedding.

"The cases reported in the last week increased by 82% from 3,514 to 6,382 cases compared to the previous 7 days".

As of 2pm on Friday, 246 Covid-19 patients were being treated in hospital, of whom 30 were in intensive care.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn said on Thursday that NPHET has considered the issue, including around worldwide practices such as "social bubbles".

In the Republic of Ireland there have been three additional Covid-related deaths, bringing the total there to 1,841.

"Every time you physically interact with another person, you are providing an opportunity for the virus to spread", he said.
