Today: 3,177 Covid-19 Cases On Our Emerald Isle.

There have been 1,828 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed by the Department of Health today, here in the Republic of Ireland.
Today also, there were 198 people in our hospitals, who have tested positive for the virus, with 33 of these patients being treated in ICU’s.
The Covid incidence rate is now at the highest level since last February, leaving significant uncertainty with regards to possible potential effects which may have been spawned by social activities during the recent August Bank Holiday weekend.

In Northern Ireland, 1,349 virus cases were reported in the last 24 hours, alas, sadly, there have also been a further 6 reported deaths.

Meanwhile, people who are yet to receive a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine are being encouraged to attend one of the 38 operating walk-in vaccination clinics across Ireland this weekend. Those attending will receive a first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

In total, there are 43 vaccination clinics in operation around the country this weekend, and as stated, 38 are operating walk-in vaccination clinics.

Remember, there is no need to register online before visiting one of the walk-in clinics, but people are required to supply a mobile phone number, Eircode, email address and photo ID, which contains their date of birth.
