This is the data concerning outbreaks/clusters.

This report includes data extracted from CIDR on 7th September 2020 at 09:15am and includes [broken link removed]

The majority for the above period are in private houses.

Interesting report. Private houses are the major source of outbreak by far. Do you know what "Closed" and "Open" mean? I'm guessing that closed means all contacts have been traced and open means contact tracing not complete.

I am not sure, but I think "closed" means the incubation period has passed with no new cases connected with the cluster reported.

This report will be published weekly.

Has anyone got figures for the amount of tests being carried out over the last few weeks?
Without that the confirmed cases figure is meaningless.

The HSE has said that in the last seven days, 72,246 swabs have been taken.
Of these 55,546 were in the community, including 16,934 as part of serial testing.
There were 16,700 swabs taken in hospitals.
The positivity rate has been around 1.6% but it can vary from day to day.
