Dublin is the epicentre of the outbreak in Ireland and its capital city, Dublin, has received more than €20m in Covid relief from Covids UK and US government programmes.
The money has been earmarked to help vulnerable families, particularly those who have had a child with the virus.
The city has also been hit hard by the surge in the number of coronavirus cases in recent months.
A report by the City of Dublin Department of Health found that the city had seen a 23 per cent increase in coronaviruses cases since January 1st, when the UK government announced the government would start using Covid vaccines in all of its hospitals.
More than 3,500 patients have been diagnosed with the disease in the city since January.
The city is not the only Irish city to be hit hard this year.
In Galway, Co Kerry, the city is one of the areas with the highest number of Covid cases.
In Co Kildare, Co Mayo, the number has risen from 3,637 cases in January to 4,938 this month.
Meanwhile, in the northern county of Leitrim, Co Louth, there have been a total of 6,719 Covid infections in the region, and more than 1,400 new cases.
It has also seen a rise in coronocidaemia cases, a type of infection that causes rapid, intense inflammation of the blood and tissues of the body.
Covid-15 has spread in the country, particularly in the UK.
Over 80,000 people are known to have been infected with the coronaviral virus, according to the latest figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
With the onset of the pandemic, more people are expected to be infected with coronavirin than in the last pandemic in the mid-1990s.
Experts have warned that coronavire is becoming more virulent, as more people around the world are exposed to the virus, including in places like the UK and the US.
“The virus is becoming much more virulence-prone, and people are starting to get infected more often, and they’re more likely to die,” said Dr Andrew Smith, a research scientist at the University of Manchester.
