Government data showed that 3,289 new injuries were recorded, bringing the total to 201,437 injuries, while the number of deaths increased by 18 cases, bringing the total to 9,778.
Canada announced on Monday that its borders with the United States will remain closed until at least November 21, as cases in the United States remain high.
Procedures and restrictions
To combat the epidemic, Ireland became the first member state of the European Union to re-impose a total lockdown to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, according to what Prime Minister Michael Martin announced Monday, who issued a nationwide “stay-at-home” decision that does not include schools.
The measure, which will last for 6 weeks, will come into effect at midnight on Wednesday (23:00 GMT), according to which all non-essential retail companies will be closed, and the work of bars and restaurants will be restricted to providing pick-up and departure services.
“All residents are required to stay at home,” Martin said in a televised address to the nation.
In a statement, the government warned that violating the restrictions on movement imposed within a 5-km radius would expose the perpetrator to punishment.
The Prime Minister returned to say that schools and homes for children will remain open “because we will not allow the future of our children and youth to fall victim to this disease.”
Yesterday, this country did not record any new deaths, but like many countries, it is witnessing an acceleration in the number of cases of Covid-19, and on Monday, 1031 cases were recorded.
