As yet another annual celebratory occasion on the calendar, Mother’s Day, elapses without the due family recognition it is deservedly afforded, the most recent figures released by the National Health Public Emergency team note that there is now twenty confirmed cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) within the county.

This escalating figure is the highest recorded pertaining to the Midlands region and places Westmeath in sixth position on the COVID-19 affected counties table released daily by the National Health Public Emergency team, showing an infection rate of just over two cases for every 10,000 persons (based on Census 2016 figures).
