Five of the six electoral areas in Kerry had fewer than five cases of COVID-19 in the past fortnight.

This is according to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre, which has calculated the number of cases and the 14-day incidence rates of COVID-19 in all local electoral areas in the Republic.

During the fortnight up to May 10th, five of the six LEAs in Kerry had fewer than five cases each over the period.

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre doesn’t report the exact number of cases when figures are lower than five; this is done to reduce the likelihood of publicly identifying people who’ve contracted the virus in local areas.

The Tralee LEA was the only one with more than five cases; over the fortnight, it had nine cases, giving it a 14-day incidence rate of 27 per 100,000 population.

For comparison, the national 14-day incidence rate over the past two weeks was 130 per 100,000.

Up to midnight on Tuesday, there were 4,545 cases reported in the county.
