Covid-19 Cases On Irish Mainland Today.

Covid-19 Cases Reach 2,377 On Irish Mainland Today.

The Department of Health here in the Republic of Ireland has confirmed 1,346 new cases of Covid-19, over the past 24 hours.

The number of people in our hospitals with the virus today stands at 315, up 4 on yesterday’s figures, while the number of people in our ICUs with the virus is 59, up 1 on yesterday’s figures.

In Northern Ireland, their Department of Health has confirmed 1,031 new cases of coronavirus, down from 1,424 cases reported yesterday.
Sadly, 6 coronavirus-related deaths have also been reported in Northern Ireland over the same period.

According to research led by King’s College London and published in The Lancet weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal; being fully vaccinated against Covid-19 not only cuts the risk of individuals catching Covid-19, but also of any infection turning into long Covid. [Long Covid materialises through symptoms including; tiredness; shortness of breath; joint pain; heart palpitations; chest pain; problems with memory and concentration (“known as brain fog”); changes to taste and smell.]

This ongoing research also indicates that in the minority of people who get Covid and despite having received two jabs, the odds of developing symptoms lasting longer than a month, are cut by some 50%.

Sadly, with deaths now reaching well over 4.5 million worldwide, many of us continue to stubbornly refuse to implement the measures necessary, in our own local communities, in bringing this killer disease to a sudden halt.

Vaccination continues to offer the best protection against the most severe effects of COVID-19, including hospitalisation and death.
