Today On Island Of Ireland 2,813 new Covid-19 Cases.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,508 new Covid-19 cases in the Republic of Ireland today. The number of patients in our hospitals today number 206 patients being treated. Of those persons in hospital, 33 are being treated in our intensive care units.

In Northern Ireland, sadly 2 further Covid related deaths have been reported. The northern Department of Health has confirmed 1,305 new cases in the last 24-hour period; an increase of 274 new cases, based on yesterday’s confirmed figures.

These figures bring to 2,813 the number of new Covid-19 cases confirmed on the whole island of Ireland over the past 24 hours.

University Hospital Limerick, this morning, had the largest number of confirmed Covid-19 patients in the Republic of Ireland; latter treating 18 confirmed cases of the new variant.

Meanwhile, coronavirus cases in China have hit a seven-month high, after a cluster at a testing site drove up their Delta variant numbers, challenging Beijing’s previous grip on this worldwide pandemic.

This latest surge in China is believed to have started from infections among airport cleaners in neighbouring Nanjing city, which in turn sparked a chain of cases across the country.

In a push to incentivise more people to get vaccinated; regional leaders and the federal government in Germany will end all free coronavirus tests next October. So from October next those who refuse to get vaccinated will have to pay to prove they are infection-free. However, children and people who for health reasons cannot be vaccinated, will still be able to get tested free of all charges.
