Ireland has the 15th highest COVID death rate in Europe despite having the highest case rate.

The latest data from the European Centre for Disease Control shows that Ireland recorded 434 cases for every 100,000 people in the past two weeks.

That is down around 70 on this day last week; however, Ireland remains significantly ahead of the other 29 countries on the list.
