No new coronavirus deaths in Northern Ireland in last 24 hours

People employ social distancing as they queue at shops in Dublin City centre in Ireland

On this, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn, said: "While NPHET continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19, both here in Ireland and internationally, ultimately it is the collective behaviours of each individual which will determine the course of this disease".

"The number of new cases and reported deaths over the past week indicates that we have suppressed COVID-19 as a country", Holohan added in a statement. There are no grounds whatsoever for complacency. He said there have been "damaging implications" of Mr Cummings' actions.

Now that payment deadlines have been relaxed due to COVID-19, the Moneycontrol Ready Reckoner will help keep your date with insurance premiums, tax-saving investments and EMIs, among others. "Sadly, there will be more lives lost in the days and week ahead".

Dr Holohan said he sympathised and the rules were always under review, but that for now the distancing guidelines would not change.

He urged people not to be distracted by the continuing controversy surrounding Dominic Cummings, the special advisor to British Prime Minister Boris Johnston.

"Actions have consequences, so don't let someone you love, or someone you don't know, suffer the consequences of your actions".


The minister also announced an expansion of testing facilities.

The latest figures from the department state the total number of people who have died remains the same as Monday's total of 514 deaths.

While private laboratories have repeatedly claimed that Rs 4,500 price cap for COVID -19 test is one of the reasons behind low testing, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) wants to reduce the price even more, reported The Indian Express.

The most recent Nisra figures, up to 15 May, recorded 664 deaths potentially linked to Coronavirus.

Dr Ni Bhriain said the number of people went below 100 this week "for the first time".

Discussions with a potential new care provider for Clifton Nursing Home are ongoing, the health trust has said.
