562 New Covid-19 Cases Confirmed In Irish Republic, Up 114 In 24 Hours.

Romanian President, Klaus Werner Iohannis.

The Department of Health has today reported 562 new cases of Covid-19, up 114 new cases in the past 24 hours.

Presently, there are 48 patients being treated in our hospitals as from 8:00am this morning, with 14 persons in intensive care units, latter a number unchanged since yesterday’s report.

The HSE School Immunisation Programme could see children, 12 years of age and upwards, vaccinated before school classrooms are populated again in early September. All going according to plan, same vaccinations could be rolled out from August, to further assist in curbing the spread of Covid-19 virus and it’s Delta variant here in our Republic.

Meanwhile, one member of the public received a positive Covid-19 antigen test while attending at yesterday’s pilot musical festival in the Royal Hospital at Kilmainham.

That person, however, then undertook a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test, which later proved negative for the virus.

An Taoiseach Mr Micheál Martin has held discussions with the Romanian President, Herr Klaus Werner Iohannis (Johannis) this morning, and we understand that it has been agreed in principle to allow Ireland to purchase one million Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, with same expected to arrive here at an early time.

Please continue to behave responsibly in order to protect each other.
