More than 10 patients have died from Covid-19 in the country's largest public care centre for the elderly, the Irish Independent understands.

There have also been up to 50 cases of the virus recorded at St Mary's Hospital in Dublin's Phoenix Park in recent weeks.

A number of staff members are believed to be among those who have fallen ill since an outbreak took hold.
