Looks like a lot in Tralee or surrounding areas of the town! Would be interesting to see more of a breakdown of the county.

The Kerryman have a closer look at the cases in Kerry. Definitely a big cluster of cases in the Tralee area & surrounds

I believe that is the breakdown. It goes to show that social distance is working. Alot in Tralee as you say but you need to take into account the population there.
Did you see the twitter with all of Ireland? Dublin is infested.

I wonder how accurate it really is? Seems unlikely that there would be so few cases from Killorglin all the ways to Sneem

Not an expert but i'd expect to see less cases in less densely populated areas and areas which wouldn't have as much traffic in from outside the area.

Would anyone have a link to the source of that twitter/kerryman image?

Expect to see a spike in numbers next week after the tests come back from the Easter weekend.
May bank holiday coming up in a few weeks....and unless people start behaving themselves...we will most likely still be in lockdown come the June bank holiday.

Hardly anything in Killarney but Tralee looks like COVID 19 central. Certainly more than other larger urbans like Waterford and Limerick.

Is there anywhere that it tells when these tests took place roughly or are we just assuming its 2 weeks? I read about the lady on the front of the kerryman that's waiting almost 4 weeks, that's a bit farcical and not very fair on her

Why would you expect low populated areas with low density to have more cases? It makes sense that Tralee and Killarney would have the most as they are larger population centres, hence more risk of spread. Some other areas like Fenit etc that seem to have a lot could have been unlucky with getting hit with infections before the lockdown took effect, the same way Lombardy in Italy was unlucky to be the first area hit.

All it would/ could take was a couple of people flying back from a ski trip in Italy or Austria back in early March for example, spreading it unknowingly to others in the village they happen to live in Kerry that would possibly explain why that village got more and another village with similar population got less or none.

Not to have more cases but to have a few I meant. I live in south Kerry, I find it hard to believe that there's none although it would be great it its true. Despite the fact that its low populated you still had people gathering in shops and stuff and not taking the lockdown all that seriously at the start.
Killorglin to Sneem is 90km roughly, a fairly massive chunk to be staying clear.

All the same the attitude is good around here, the elderly arent rising out at all and you rarely see kids hanging around the place like you usually would

An updated map of Kerry from Radio Kerry:

'New COVID-19 cases in Kerry, Munster and Republic of Ireland, as per the HSE's latest data.
Grey dots are pre-reported cases and red dots are the latest confirmed cases (as per 14 April).'

On first glance, thankfully appears to be fewer reds this time?
