The HSE is working rapidly to identify any close contacts the newly confirmed cases in the Republic may have had, in order to advise them and stop the further spread of the virus. "We need every citizen to heed the advice and measures put in place to protect all of us". We can see from the data that people are most concerned about their family and friends.
