The Northern Sound region has some of the highest rates of Covid in the country.

A pop-up Covid test centre is to open in Virginia this weekend.

The HSE this morning announced the centre due to concerns over rising case numbers in the area.

The Department of Public Health, North East says the Bailieborough-Cootehill and Ballyjamesduff areas in particular have seen large increases.
