Covid-19 Cases Reach 3,218 Today On Irish Mainland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,470 new cases of Covid-19 over the past 24 hours, here in the Irish republic.

There are 367 people being treated for the virus in hospital, with the number of people in intensive care units remaining static at 59.
Some 70% of the Irish republic’s population are now fully vaccinated.

On a less positive note, the HSE estimates that between 10,000 and 12,000 pupils are currently out of school, having to self-isolate because they have been deemed to be close contacts.

In Northern Ireland today, 1,748 new cases of Covid-19 have been reported. This morning, there were 461 Covid-19 patients in hospital, 45 of whom were in intensive care. Sadly, a further seven deaths were also reported in the last 24 hour period.

Demand for COVID-19 testing continues to remains strong in Co. Tipperary, with well over 1,000 tests conducted in the north of the county in the past seven weeks, most of which appear to have been brought about through the opening up of the hospitality sector.

Please continue to stay safe.
