Today Confirms A Further 2,695 Cases Of Covid-19 On Island Of Ireland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,382 new cases of Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland today; up 143 cases on yesterday’s published figures.
There are 355 people being treated for the virus in our hospitals, while the number of people in our intensive care units currently remains at 54.

In Northern Ireland today, 1,313 new cases of the virus were confirmed, with, sadly, 6 more deaths directly linked to the virus.

The Irish Cabinet has agreed to a future coronavirus roadmap that would effectively bring an end to most restrictions by October 22nd next.

However, same remains contingent on Covid-19 cases remaining manageable and at least 90% of adults receiving full vaccinations. However, masks are still going to be required in all health and retail sectors and on all public transport services.

Up to yesterday, the Health Service Executive has confirmed that some 164,000 children, aged between 12 and 15 years have now registered for a Covid-19 vaccine, while 148,000 have received their first vaccination dose. Same children are being offered either Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.

Abroad, the European Union has recommended that member states reimpose travel restrictions on US tourists entering States over continued rising Covid infections.

However such recommendations are seen to be not binding on national capitals, which may yet decide to allow fully vaccinated US travellers to visit. To date during this Covid crisis, most EU member States have followed advice on all Brussels travel restrictions.
