COVID-19: No plans to close parts of Dublin with rising cases - Donnelly


The Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says there are currently no plans for local lockdowns in parts of Dublin. It comes after 217 cases were confirmed here on Tuesday - the highest daily figure since May. Some 103 of the new cases were in the capital. But Minister Donnelly told Pat Kenny there are no plans being considered for any lockdown. "That's not being contemplated at the moment - what we're looking at at the moment is the different healthcare areas within Dublin. "It's split into eight. "What we're seeing is that in the north and north-west, really around the border of Kildare, we are seeing higher cases. "The cases in Dublin generally have been increasing steadily over the last few days. "We are watching the situation carefully." Cover Photo: Sasko Lazarov/Rollingnews.ie
