A karaoke party at a house on the outskirts of Limavady is understood to be the cause of a Covid-19 outbreak.

It is believed partygoers followed social distancing guidelines, but it is thought the virus was transmitted by the microphone being passed around.

Health officials are now conducting a test and trace programme to establish how many other people have the virus.
