Covid-19 Update: Wed. 3rd Feb. 2021 – 94 Deaths – 1,013 New Cases

Only YOU can stop the current chain of transmission.

This evening the Department of Health have confirmed that, sadly, there have been 94 further deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll, here in the Republic of Ireland, remaining at 3,512.

We further learn that there have been 1,013 new additional virus cases reported in the republic today. This leaves the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception, here in the Irish Republic, at 199,430.

There have been 4,393 confirmed cases to date in Tipperary since the pandemic began, based on data relevant up to midnight on Monday, Feb. 1st last.

Of today’s cases nationally; 337 cases are in Dublin, 96 are in Galway, 65 in Cork, 60 in Kildare, 48 in Louth with the remaining 407 cases located across all other counties.

There are over 1,367 people with Covid-19 in hospital, and of that number, 203 people are in ICU’s, according to Ireland’s COVID-19 Data Hub.

Sadly a further 11 people with Covid-19 have died in Northern Ireland, with another 504 confirmed positive cases notified by their Department of Health.

The Health Service Executive (HSE) has stated that its advice is that people over 70 years of age, should get the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines, rather than the AstraZeneca vaccine. The AstraZeneca vaccine will now be reserved for younger people. GP’s had been expected to begin vaccinating older people this month, starting with those aged over 85 years.
Meanwhile, regulators in Switzerland have stated that data submitted by AstraZeneca is not sufficient for them to authorise the use of the company’s Covid-19 product.

Total global cases up to 5.30pm this evening, are now standing at well over 104 million confirmed cases, with global deaths at almost 2.26 million.

Please Stay Safe – Stay at Home.
