    Dermot Cream states that it is unknown how many of the 308 Covid 19 cases in Kerry have recovered.
    If you look at the facts it is possible to get a very likely number.
    According to Tony the king of numbers 87per cent of all cases have recovered. That gives a maximum of 40 active cases in Kerry.
    However on the 2nd of May the cases in Kerry stood at 301. Almost four weeks ago. It is most likely that ALL of these cases have been resolved. Since then there have been only seven cases reported in Kerry.
    Therefore the most likely tally of active cases is a MAXIMUM of seven.

    Journalists as yourself need to start asking real questions. The public deserve to know.

    How many active cases in Kerry?
    How many in Covid ward in UHK?
    How many in ICU?

    My understanding is that the Covid ward is closed due to lack of cases.
    Stop terrorising people and attempt to open what is left of the economy if it’s not too late.
