2,723 Killer Covid-19 Cases On Island Of Ireland Today.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,386 new cases of Covid-19 today, in the Irish Republic.

The number of patients in hospitals from the virus has increased by 11 since yesterday, to number 106 today, with 22 cases in ICU’s.

In Northern Ireland today, sadly there has been 1 further death from this killer virus, together with a further 1,337 positive cases, bringing the total number of cases on the island of Ireland to 2,723. There remain currently 163 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of Covid-19 in Northern Ireland’s hospitals.

Irish Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ronan Glynn, has condemned the misinformation being spread online, and how many people have been exposed to such information which is totally false, totally inaccurate and totally misleading and which had begun being spread about potential Covid-19 vaccines, even before same had been fully developed.

Here in Thurles, indeed we are sadly being subjected by a small minority of individuals to such undermining of vaccination efforts, being posted on social media, which may be putting a very small minority of lives at risk.

Same has not been helped by Tipperary elected TD’s failing to confirm whether or not they themselves have been fully vaccinated, some claiming that it was, “an infringement on civil liberties.”
