According to the HSE's Department of Public Health, counties Cavan and Monaghan have seen an "increase" in Covid cases across the region in recent weeks.

As a result, the HSE is "urging" people who are eligible for a Covid-19 vaccine or a booster and who have not yet received it to "get their vaccine."

In a statement to Northern Sound, Dr Deirdre Mulholland, Area Director of Public Health says the incidence rates of Covid-19 are increasing again in our general population - including amongst the elderly.
