Covid-19 Updates: Sun. 6th June 2021 – 313 New Virus Cases.

As final preparations are being made ahead of further easing of Covid-19 restrictions tomorrow, with all outdoor hospitality being permitted, together with gyms and cinemas being allowed to reopen; the Department of Health this evening has confirmed there have been 313 new additional virus cases reported. (Same case numbers subject to future data validation.)

There are 70 people with Covid-19 remaining in hospital today in the Republic of Ireland and of that number 27 are in ICU’s.

Gardaí continue to appeal to people this holiday weekend period to demonstrate responsibility while socialising outdoors.

With the Delta (India) variant of the coronavirus estimated to be 40% more transmissible than the Alpha (UK) variant, we welcome the statement from Irish Minister for Health, Mr Stephen Donnelly, that the target of three million vaccine doses should be reached over this weekend here in the Irish Republic.

In Northern Ireland, their Department of Health has confirmed 69 new cases of the disease today.

The total worldwide number of virus cases identified up to 4.45pm this evening, now stands at well over 173.05 million confirmed cases, with global deaths at well over 3.72 million.

Enjoy the weekend, but please do continue to behave responsibly in order to protect each other.
