There are only 754 active cases of Covid-19 in Ireland right now

The virus has been slowing down for some time now, thanks to stringent restrictions imposed by the government and the compliance of the nation as a whole since Covid-19 arrived in Ireland earlier this year.

And, with Ireland due to enter phase two of the five-phase roadmap to reopen the country next week, things are looking far more hopeful than they were a couple of months ago.

There are currently only 754 active cases of coronavirus in Ireland, according to global statistic website, Worldometer, which has been monitoring the spread of the virus since it first emerged in China.

That's 754 cases of the 25,111 total confirmed cases the country has had since March, meaning there have been 22,698 recoveries from the virus since it arrived in Ireland.

Ireland's death toll, since the pandemic began, has reached 1,659, with three new deaths announced this evening (Wednesday). 47 new confirmed cases were also announced this evening.

The 754 active cases is a significant drop on yesterday's figure, which stood at over 1,300. Of those 754, a total of 36 are believed to be in a serious or critical state, with the remaining 718 considered not serious.
