Ireland Records No Covid19 Death For The First Time In Nine Weeks.
The North-western Europe’s Ireland has recorded no new deaths from Covid19 for the first time in over 2 months.
The Department of Health has announced no new deaths related to the coronavirus for the first time since mid-March.
Prime Minister Leo Varadkar called it a “significant milestone”, adding on Twitter: “This is a day of hope. We will prevail.”
The announcement came one week after Ireland, which has suffered 1,606 deaths from 24,698 infections, began to ease lockdown measures that had been in place for nearly two months.
The department also announced 59 newly-confirmed cases of the coronavirus – the ninth time in the last ten days that daily cases have been under 100.
A total of 24,698 cases of the coronavirus has been confirmed in Ireland since its outbreak in February.
