At least six elderly residents who tested positive for Covid-19 have passed away in one Dublin nursing home.

The deaths have occurred on an almost daily basis this week, as staff in the home struggle to contain the outbreak.

The nursing home, which has not been identified in order to protect residents and staff, is among the 67 nursing homes that are currently battling outbreaks of the coronavirus.
