Cases of Coronavirus in Laois go above 100

The number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Laois from the latest Department of Health figures is 101.

These figures come from April 12 and are the latest available – an increase of 13 of the previous day.

This is still relatively low when compared with our Midlands neighbours who all, bar one, have a significantly higher number – but we are catching up.

Kildare has the highest on 443 cases with Westmeath (234), Tipperary (219) and Offaly (144) coming next.

While Carlow has the lowest number of any of our neighbours with 44 confirmed cases.

The vast majority of the cases, 5,438, are in Dublin with Cork next on 780.

This comes on a day that Ireland’s confirmed cases went up by 832 to go to 11,195 overall.

While now 406 people have died from the disease – an increase of 41 from yesterday.
