The Department of Health has confirmed that there have, sadly, been 26 further deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll, here in the Republic of Ireland, remaining at 4,135.

There have been 988 new additional virus cases reported within the republic today, or 11,759 in the past 14 days. This leaves the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception, here in the Irish Republic, at 214,378.

There are 719 people with Covid-19 in hospital, and of that number, 149 are in ICU’s, according to Ireland’s COVID-19 Data Hub.

A Taoiseach Micheál Martin has stated that the coronavirus numbers remain far too high and both the Government and public health officials remain concerned regarding the emergence of new variants, thus any easing of restrictions must be cautious. In relation to the reopening of the hospitality sector, Mr Martin stated that he did not foresee that scenario happening before the middle of the summer.
Three cases of the virus variant first detected in Brazil, have been confirmed in Ireland, however we understand that these three cases have been completely contained.

Some 197,609 first doses of Covid-19 vaccines were administered by the Health Service Executive (HSE) here in Ireland up to February 17th, with 113,291 having received their second dose.

The total world wide number of cases identified up to 5:30pm this evening, are now standing at almost 110.8 million confirmed cases, with global deaths well over 2.45 million.

    Transport Infrastructure Ireland Failing Thurles Town
    Posted: 20 Feb 2021 02:03 PM PST …….
    …….. “We here at Thurles.Info always give credit where credit is justified.
    Perhaps Mr Marcus O’Connor might like to get up from his office desk and visit the streets of Thurles and surrounding roads, to experience at first hand the failures now being tolerated by the people of Thurles.”

    PERHAPS YOU NEED TO SEND HIM A MAP, TO HELP HIM FIND THURLES? TELL HIM TO AVOID PEAK HOURS, AS THE TOWN IS NOW IMPASSABLE AT THOSE TIMES. WHATEVER WILL IT BE LIKE WHEN THE SCHOOLS OPEN???????????
