2,912 New Cases Covid-19 Confirmed On Island Of Ireland Over Past 24 Hours.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,592 new cases of Covid-19 in the Irish Republic within the past 24 hours. There are 318 patients in our hospitals, with 60 of this number in Intensive care units

Only 53% of those aged between 16 to 29, within the Republic are fully vaccinated and thus they continue to account for the highest incidence of Covid-19 in our population. Those, who to date, have not been vaccinated with the ongoing rise in Covid-19 case numbers, could now impact on delaying elective procedures in our hospitals, with bed capacity continuing to reduce in recent days.

In Northern Ireland, 1,320 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in the past 24 hours together with, sadly, 9 further deaths.

Here in Co. Tipperary the 14 day incidence rate reads as follows, same based on local electoral area statistics:- Cashel-Tipperary – 584; Nenagh – 482; Newport – 385; Thurles – 356; Carraig-On-Suir – 289; Cahir – 285; Roscrea-Templemore – 181; Clonmel -160.

Two of the lowest local electoral area incidence rates per 100k nationally are Clonmel, Co. Tipperary and Roscrea-Templemore, Co. Tipperary.

Anyone who is eligible to receive a vaccine, should now do so as soon as possible.
Remember you will be fully protected 7-14 days after your second dose.
