Only YOU can stop the current chain of transmission.

This evening the Department of Health have confirmed that, sadly, there have been 23 further deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll, here in the Republic of Ireland, remaining at 3,865.

We further learn that there have been 921 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 207,720.

Relative to midnight last night, (February 11th), 25 further cases of Covid-19 were confirmed over the previous 24 hours, here in Co. Tipperary.

Of the cases today; 414 are in Dublin, 87 in Cork, 51 in Kildare, 48 in Limerick, 47 in Meath, with the remaining 274 cases located across all other counties.

There are over 959 people with Covid-19 in hospital, and of that number, 173 people are in ICU’s, according to Ireland’s COVID-19 Data Hub.

The HSE’s Chief Clinical Officer has defended the pace of the vaccination roll-out plan in Ireland, saying people are being vaccinated as soon as same is delivered. As of 8:00am, the total number of 1st dose vaccines administered, sourced from the HSE’s vaccine information system, was 158,904. Some 89,380 people are understood to have now received two doses of the vaccine. (Data last Updated: Thursday, February 11, 2021.)

In Northern Ireland, sadly, 9 further people have died from Covid-19, with 407 new confirmed cases today.

A dental practice in Tenerife has stopped taking appointments from so called Irish patients, after it had experienced a surge in its bookings over the past fortnight. They claimed that some of the patients failed to show up. [One wonder why, obviously fear of the dentist?]

While a five-day lockdown has been ordered in the Australian state of Victoria, which includes the city of Melbourne; to control an outbreak of the highly infectious strain of Covid-19, first detected in the UK, we learn that the total world wide number of cases identified up to 5:30pm this evening, are now standing at almost 108 million confirmed cases, with global deaths at well over 2.37 million.
