Today 2,552 Covid-19 Cases Confirmed On Island Of Ireland.

The Department of Health has reported 1,293 new cases of Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland today.

There remain 382 people in our hospitals who have tested positive for the disease, a rise of 35 patients since yesterday. Of these, 61 are in our intensive care units, an increase of one overnight.

In Northern Ireland another 1,259 cases of coronavirus were reported today, up from 1,225 reported yesterday. There were 45 patients with Covid-19 in hospital intensive care units and, sadly, 6 further coronavirus-related deaths.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that an increase in Covid-19 transmission rates across Europe over the last two weeks, combined with low levels of vaccination in some countries, is deeply worrying. It feared another 236,000 Covid-19 deaths across Europe by December 1st of this current year.

Here in Ireland hesitancy over the taking of vaccine has taken a staggering drop over the last 10 months, with one in ten in the 18–24 age group stating they are unsure about the vaccine, there research based solely on misinformation obtained on social media.

The WHO European Director, Mr Hans Kluge has stated that this stagnation in vaccine uptake here in Europe is of serious concern and he attributed the higher transmissions of the spread of the more transmissible Delta variant to an exaggerated easing of restrictions, together with a surge in summer travel.

Stay Safe.
