Covid-19 Cases Increase By 63 Today.

As of midnight, Friday 25th June, the Department of Health has reported 443 new cases of Covid-19; up 63 on yesterdays reported figure.

There are 43 patients currently in our hospitals with the disease, (up 7 on yesterday) and 13 of these are being treated in ICU.

In Northern Ireland, 298 positive cases of Covid-19 and no deaths were reported in the past 24 hours

Here in the Republic, the Chief Executive of the HSE Paul Reid confirmed that 84% of cases of the Delta variant are in the those under 45 years old, and only 40% of eligible adults will be fully-vaccinated by close of business yesterday.

Known evidence now suggests that the Delta variant circulates much more widely during the summer months, especially amongst younger, unvaccinated individuals.

The total worldwide number of known virus cases identified up to 4.30pm this evening, now stands at well over 203,105,794 confirmed cases, with global deaths at well over 4,299,559 persons and rising.

Please do continue to wear your face coverings and to socially distance. The latter has proven to have significantly limited the spread of COVID-19.
