Ireland is now locked out as the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 has reached 3,235.
In total, 71 people died from the deadly virus until Tuesday noon.
Another 30 deaths recorded in Northern Ireland bring the total number of deaths on the island to 101 – while there have been 3,924 confirmed cases all together.
More than 30,200 people in the Republic of Ireland were tested for coronavirus at midnight Monday.
The positivity rate increased from 6% to 15% due to changes in what was required of people requesting a test.
But many people wonder how long it will take for symptoms of the virus to appear, the government saying that anyone with symptoms should be isolated for two weeks.
How long does it take for coronavirus symptoms to appear?
97% of COVID-19 patients show symptoms within 11 days of contracting the virus. This is why you must isolate yourself for 14 days if a member of your household has symptoms. It is possible that you have also caught the virus and that you simply do not present symptoms yet.
The average incubation period is thought to be around five days.
People with the virus are most contagious when they have symptoms – but you can spread it even if you don’t feel bad.
What are the symptoms of coronavirus?
The most common symptoms are a dry, persistent cough, fever, and loss of smell or taste.
If you have any of these symptoms, you must isolate yourself for seven days.
Everyone else in your household should isolate themselves for 14 days.
About 80% of people who catch coronavirus will only have mild symptoms and will not need medical attention.
