3,781 Cases Of Covid-19 Confirmed On Island Of Ireland In Last 24 Hours.

In the Republic of Ireland, the Department of Health has confirmed 1,818 new cases of Covid-19 within the past 24 hours. The number of people being treated for the virus in our hospitals now stands at 244, with 52 of these patients in our intensive care units (ICU’S).

Some 124,000 people in the 12-15 age group have now signed up to be vaccinated, with 72,000 of these having been already administered with their first dose.

In Northern Ireland there were another 1,963 cases of coronavirus reported today. Currently there remain 379 patients with Covid in Northern Ireland’s hospitals, 46 of whom are patients in intensive care units (ICU’S). Sadly, also today, 9 further coronavirus-related deaths have been reported.

The Chairperson of the British Medical Association in Northern Ireland Dr. Tom Black, has stated that it is inevitable that unvaccinated people will become infected with Covid-19, as Northern Ireland remains lagging behind England, Scotland, Wales and Republic of Ireland, in terms of the vaccinating of the 18-29 age group.

The above confirmed figures bring to 3,781 in total the overall number of new Covid-19 cases present on the whole island of Ireland, reported over the past 24 hours; up 575 cases based on yesterday’s figures.

Covid-19 has not gone away.
The battle against Covid–19 is sadly far from over.
