Friday’s update: Three new cases of Covid-19 reported across Northern Ireland

THREE new cases of Covid-19 have been reported across Northern Ireland in the last day.

The three positive tests came from tests involving 1,098 individuals.

It brings the total number of cases across NI since the pandemic began to 4,776.

The Department of Health said there had been no Covid-related deaths in the last day.

However, their figures did include one more death which they said had occurred earlier. They are now reporting 536 deaths.

There have been 327 cases of coronavirus reported in Mid & East Antrim since the pandemic began; 408 in Antrim and Newtownabbey – up one since yesterday – and 248 in Causeway Coast & Glens – also up one.


Two sets of statistics are produced – the Department of Health gives out daily updates – while NISRA (Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency) releases one report – on Fridays.

Today’s earlier NISRA figures show there have been 49 Covid-related deaths in Mid & East Antrim since the outbreak began.

The NISRA figures show that, by 29th May 2020, 754 COVID-19 related deaths had occurred across Northern Ireland, based on registrations up to 3rd June 2020. Department of Health figures for the same period showed a total of 528 deaths.

The NISRA report said their most recent statistics show there had been 49 Covid-related deaths in the Mid & East Antrim area; 78 in Antrim and Newtownabbey and 65 in Causeway Coast & Glens.
