Covid-19 Numbers Confirmed At 3,278 Today On Irish Mainland.

The Department of Health has confirmed a further 2,002 cases of Covid-19 here in the Republic of Ireland over the past 24 hours, up 766 cases compared to yesterday.

There remains 354 people in our hospitals having tested positive for the virus, reduced by 1, based on yesterday’s provided figures. Of these, 73 are in intensive care, a rise of 4 within the same time frame.

Counties faring best with coronavirus are: – Co. Tipperary , Co. Kilkenny , Co. Wicklow, Co. Wexford, Co. Cork, Co. Offaly and Co. Clare .

According to immunologist Professor Luke O’Neill, there is some evidence that the Delta variant of the coronavirus, may be as bad as it’s going to get.

Professor O’Neill stated last Tuesday that there is some hope that Delta may be the last throw of the dice for this particular virus. He also suggested that Covid-19 vaccines may ultimately require three shots to ensure people are fully protected for the long term.

In Northern Ireland, another 1,276 cases of the virus were confirmed by their Department of Health, in the last 24 hours; down from the 1,305 cases reported yesterday.

The latest northern hospital figures show there were 360 patients with Covid-19 in hospitals today, up 1 on yesterday. Some 35 Covid patients are being treated in their hospital intensive care units, up 2 on yesterday.

Sadly, 2 further coronavirus-related deaths have also been reported in Northern Ireland on today.

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