1,161 Confirmed Cases Of Covid-19 On Island Of Ireland.

Today Thursday, July 8th, 534 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in the Irish Republic.

In Northern Ireland, a further 627 new cases were reported bringing the total on the island of Ireland to 1,161 confirmed cases, over the past 24-hour period.

Here in the Republic, there are 58 Covid patients in our hospitals as a direct result this morning; with 17 patients in intensive care units.

There were 48 Covid patients in Northern Ireland hospitals, including 3 in intensive care units.

Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Tony Holohan, has warned that Covid-19 is still circulating in our community and as we arrive into this weekend, it is extremely important that we continue to adhere to well noted public health advice, thus insuring an eventual halt to the spread of this disease.

His advice comes as the CEO of the HSE Mr Paul Reid warned that the growth of the Delta variant of Covid-19 is likely to overtake and outmatch Ireland’s future supply of vaccines in the weeks ahead. To this end, hospital numbers are being monitored very closely, he stated, and in terms of planning, the HSE is looking at a range of scenarios, but it is difficult to predict what exactly may happen in the weeks ahead.
