Level 5 Restrictions Having A Positive Impact In Reducing Covid-19 Cases In Cork

A decrease has been seen in the City and County

In the last week of October, there were 150 new cases confirmed in Cork almost every day, however in the last week the daily figures of confirmed cases has been well under 100 each day. 

The acting Director of Public Health for the HSE South Dr Anne Sheahan says Cork is making strong progress in the drive to bring the number of Covid cases down and this needs to be acknowledged. 

Speaking to RedFM News, Dr. Sheahan says the reductions in cases shows there is light at the end of the tunnel:

'It's been very difficult for people from everybody from children to young adults to older people. Everybody has been putting their shoulder to the wheel and really sort of driving to remain at home, keep their distance, and it's nice to see that it's actually showing the impact it can have, if we continue to restrict our movements and treat everybody as if their a close contact to a certain extent we can actually impact on those numbers in the longer term, even though I do notice it's going to be difficult, and it is difficult.'
