Following the increase in corona virus cases, Dr. Ronan Glyn gave seven tips to two players.
Today, there are 102 new cases, the acting chief medical officer said.
He tweeted: “The next 7 days are really important.
“People in Dublin and Limerick in particular have to guess # Kovid-19 Spreading. “
His tips were:
Minimize your social contacts
Take a step back and keep your distance from others
Do not leave your guard because you know someone
Contact your GP separately for symptoms. Do not go to work. Remember that a test is genetic
Wash your hands regularly throughout the day

During a briefing this evening, Dr. Glynn added: “Next week is very important and people need to cut their social ties,” he said.
“They need to take all precautions in those countries next week.
“Unfortunately, they now have to assume that Kovid is spreading in the community and act accordingly.”
Dr. Glynn added: “I can not say strongly that people in Dublin are particularly prone to physical distance. They need to cut their social ties.”
The total number of cases in Ireland is currently 29,774.
No more deaths related to the epidemic were reported today.
In the last 14 days, 1,672 cases have been reported, and 35 cases per one lakh population provide 14-day events.
In such cases, the average age was 33, and 70% occurred in those under 45 years of age.
Half (47%) of the cases are in Dublin, 8% in Kildare, 7% in Limerick, 6% in Tipperary and 3% in Cork. The remaining cases are in 21 counties.
The health department said six new clusters had been registered in the workplace and none of them were in meat plants.
He expressed concern over the increase in the number of people seeking treatment in hospitals. Glynn said. 49 cases were confirmed in hospitals and six in intensive care units.
People still have the power to change this path but each person needs a higher level of risk than they do now.
“If you meet people, meet them outside,” he said.
“We want you to socialize, we want you to meet people. The last thing we want to do for winter is isolate people, but we need people to do it more safely.”
