The HSE is now working to identify any contacts the patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.

The figures were released by the Department of Health at a briefing this evening.

There have now been 120 deaths from Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland, while the total number of confirmed cases now stands at 4,273. There have now been 98 coronavirus related deaths in Ireland with the median age at 82 years old.

A further 212 cases of the virus have also been confirmed on Wednesday bringing the total to 3,447.

The Health Research Board said it is to start a clinical trial in a number of intensive care units to find out if there are treatments which can support patients who are seriously ill.

"We are concerned with the number of clusters identified in nursing homes", said Dr Holohan.

However of the 148 admitted to an ICU, 25 of those cases have been discharged.

Meanwhile, there are now 171 clusters of COVID-19 around the country, made up of 626 cases.

The National Public Health Emergency Team met today, and among the issues which it was due to address was concerns about some of the Personal Protective Equipment which Ireland has secured in recent days, including shipments from China.

"The measures that we have recommended today should significantly enhance the preparedness and response to cases and outbreaks in nursing homes and other residential settings".

Dublin has been the worst hit part of the country, reporting 57% of all cases with Cork the nearest on 8%.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn said it is too early to draw any firm conclusions as the latest figures show a slight decrease in cases of Covid-19. These efforts result in lives saved. We will continue to protect vulnerable groups against this virus, by staying home and following public health advice. "Over 70's should not be leaving home".

One of the 22 new deaths was in the west of Ireland, 18 were in the east, 3 three were in the south, and it's understood that 16 had underlying health conditions.

Nearly 80% of coronavirus cases will be a mild illness, while 14% of people will have a severe infection, and 6% will be deemed critical.
