Coronavirus: 204 more cases of Covid-19 in Ireland, with another death confirmed

The figures were confirmed this evening.

JackWal21896384 Is this not the Chinese virus as you previously made reference to?
Figures are way higher than that as a lot of people aren’t getting tested as they don’t have a fever but, as we know from Claire Byrne last night, you don’t always get a temperature. Currently if you don’t have temp you don’t get tested unless you’re famous obviously!
