1,419 New Cases Of Covid-19 Confirmed On Island Of Ireland.

Here in the republic of Ireland, a further 783 cases of the Covid-19 virus have been reported by the Department of Health.

There are 73 people being treated in our hospitals, with one further coronavirus-linked death reported. Of those patients hospitalised, there are presently 20 committed to intensive care units, latter an increase of three compared with yesterday’s figures. It was also confirmed today that sadly at least 12 deaths, linked to the virus, were confirmed in June.

A further 636 cases of Covid-19 have also been reported in Northern Ireland today, bringing the total no of cases on our tiny island to 1,419 within the past 24 hours.

With travel restrictions opened up, the number of cases must now continue to be viewed in an all-Ireland context.

Ireland currently has the 4th lowest number of people in hospital or in intensive care units, being treated for Covid-19, for every million of the population, mainly thanks to our present government wisely following the guidelines as set out by the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet).

It remains ever dispiriting therefore that our four totally unqualified Tipperary politicians (from a science view point), namely Mattie McGrath, Michael Lowry, Alan Kelly, and the governments own Fianna Fail TD, Jackie Cahill, have chosen to level criticism on our government, while refuting the advice being given by the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet), in what is being observed by Tipperary dwellers as an attempt at further vote catching by ‘overpaid idlers’.

In the modelling presented by Nphet at the end of June last, the possible scenario presented and predicted, by the latter, was an additional 681,900 new cases present by the end of September, with the possibility of 12,985 hospital admissions, 1,685 intensive care admissions and possibly 2,170 deaths.

The Chairperson of the Nphet’s modelling group; Professor Philip Nolan continues to state that the new modelling of future growth of the disease remains a cause for considerable concern.

Professor Nolan however, remains optimistic that if individuals are presented with the above forcast, they could and would modify their behaviour, thus changing the inevitable trajectory of the disease as had been accomplished in the past months.
