Just over 80 cases have been recorded in the Shannonside region in the last fortnight

Over 170 people have tested positive for Covid 19 in the Shannonside Northernsound region in the last fortnight.

Cavan has the seventh-highest Covid incidence rate in the country- just above the national average.

The cyber-attack on the HSE  last month has prevented the daily breakdown of Covid cases in each county.
