Covid-19 Update: Tue. 19th Jan. 2021 – 93 Deaths – 2,001 New Cases

46 new killer Covid-19 virus cases in past 24 hours, as confirmed cases continue to rise in Co. Tipperary.

The Department of Health have confirmed this evening that, sadly, there have been 93 further deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll, here in the Republic of Ireland, remaining at 2,708. (One Case denotified)

With our Irish hospital system continuing to operate at surge capacity, there were 2,001 new additional virus cases reported today. This leaves the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception in the Irish Republic, at 176,839.

Of today’s cases nationally; 701 are in Dublin, 204 in Cork, 102 in Waterford, 98 in Meath, 90 in Donegal with the remaining 806 cases located across all other counties.

There are 1,949 people with Covid-19 in hospital, and of that number, 202 people are in ICU, according to Ireland’s Covid Data Hub.

According to Ireland’s COVID-19 Data Hub, to date there have now been 3,735 recorded cases of the killer Covid-19 Virus within the borders of Co. Tipperary, per data relevant up to midnight on Sunday, January 17th, 2021. Forty six (46) cases are relevant in the 24 hours to midnight on Monday, January 18th, 2021, or 1,558 over the past 14 day period, up to Tuesday January 19th, 2021.

The Irish Government is expected to complete a review of the current Covid-19 restrictions at next Tuesday’s Cabinet meeting. With the current restrictions set to continue until January 31st next, it would now appear that same will be extended for a longer period of time. Scotland have extended their restrictions until at least the middle of February, as Britain reported a record number of deaths from Covid-19 today with 1,610 people dying within just 28 days of being tested positive from the virus.

The European Commission has signalled to all Member States, to accelerate the roll-out of vaccination across the union, so that by March 2021, 80% of people over the age of 80, and 80% of health and social care professionals should be vaccinated. The Commission further stated that by summer 2021, member states should have vaccinated a minimum of 70% of the adult population.

The privately owned Beacon Hospital in Dublin has finally signed up for to treat public patients under the safety net ‘surge capacity’ agreement with the Health Service Executive. The Beacon had been the only private hospital not to sign up to the deal, which correctly sees our private hospital system agreeing to provide up to 30% of its capacity to the HSE.

Total global cases up to 5.30pm this evening, are now standing at almost 96 million confirmed cases, with global deaths headed for 2.05 million.

Only YOU can stop the current chain of transmission.

Please Stay Safe – Stay Home.
