Currently, there are 279 confirmed cases of Covid-19 recorded nationally in our Irish State hospitals, with 39 of these patients in intensive care units, (ICU’s).

An Tánaiste Mr Leo Varadkar is wisely advising people attempting to book flights home to Ireland for the Christmas holidays, not to do so presently. Speaking in our Irish parliament, Mr Varadkar has stated that it was too soon for people to book flights to return to Ireland, adding that such international travel could reseed the Covid-19 virus here. This advice comes as the Irish Airline Pilots Association call for the urgent introduction of a mandatory rapid antigen testing regime, in order to enable the reopening of the aviation sector.

The Department of Health in Northern Ireland have announced that a further 15 people have died from Covid-19 virus, taking their official death toll to 825. An additional 548 cases of the virus have also been confirmed there.
