By Darragh Berry

A north Dublin nursing home has confirmed that a number of residents and staff have tested positive for Covid-19 and are battling the cruel disease.

The facility has alerted the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) and informed family members about the worrying news.

A spokeswoman for the nursing home said that those who have been infected are currently self-isolating.

She added that updates will be issued on a regular basis to HIQA and the families, thanking the HSE for their assistance on the matter also.
The news comes as Ireland’s top professor issued a stark warning that the country could see thousands of cases a day by Halloween.

Professor Philip Nolan said that the number of daily cases could be between 1,800 to 2,500 cases as there has been a massive jump in cases over the last few weeks.

A total of 1,205 new cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Ireland in the last 24 hours bringing the overall number of infections to 46,429.
