3,822 New Covid-19 Cases On Island Of Ireland Over Past 24 Hours.

The Department of Health has confirmed 2,051 more coronavirus cases here in the Republic Of Ireland in the past 24 hours.

There are 323 patients being treated in our hospitals, up 16 on yesterday with 56 Covid-19 patients in our intensive care units (ICUs), an increase of 1 on yesterday.

In Northern Ireland today, sadly, there have been 5 coronavirus-related deaths confirmed today.

Here also, there have been reported another 1,771 cases of coronavirus, up from 1,648 yesterday. There are 388 patients with Covid-19 in hospitals, up from 373 yesterday, with 43 patients with Covid-19 in northern intensive care units, up from 41 yesterday.

Minister for Education Ms Norma Foley has stated that if a pregnant woman decides, in consultation with her doctor, or if her consultant recommends that it is not appropriate to return to work, then pregnancy-related leave remains in place.

The Minister for Health Mr Stephen Donnelly has said that the expected reopening roadmap will consider lifting only some current restrictions in the coming weeks, with others likely to be delayed until after the expected Covid-peak in four to six week’s time.

Same action by Minister Donnelly is seen by the vast majority of Tipperary people as the most appropriate action at this time, as case numbers continue to increase.
