We have updated the Coronavirus dashboard with the latest confirmed infections. The first infections in the Free State have been reported: 7 in total, all of them men. Local transmissions have increased by just one to 16.  Most of the confirmed cases were people who recently travelled to another country, but there are 29 people whose source of infection is listed as unknown because their travel history is described as "pending" by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases.
