The spread of Covid-19 across Co Wexford shows no sign of abating as the number of confirmed cases continues to rise and the county remains in the top ten in the country in terms of infection rate with a rate of 35.4 per 100,000.

Although Dublin and Limerick remain the immediate concerns for NPHET, concerns have also been expressed around the growth of the virus in the model county, particularly having done so well in terms of keeping numbers down early on when the pandemic hit.

Last week got off to a difficult start as Wexford saw a rise of 15 cases announced on Tuesday, bringing us to a total of 326 cases since the pandemic began.
