Monaghan the only county to have no confirmed case of coronavirus

Monaghan is the only county not to have reported a case of coronavirus.

However, a number of Northern Sound listeners have raised concerns about delays in getting tested for the virus.

The latest figures released by health authorities last night show 557 cases of Covid-19 in Ireland, an increase of 191.

Three people have now died.

Locally, less than five cases have been reported in Cavan.

Monaghan is the only county not to have reported a case. A number of people contacted Northern Sound News yesterday saying in some cases they had been left waiting almost a week for a test.

The HSE said it does not comment on individual cases but testing is being carried out at 26 centres across each CHO area.

However, it’s not believed that any testing is carried out in Monaghan at present.

The HSE told Northern Sound News that there will be an expansion in the number of testing locations in the coming days.
