Covid-19 Numbers Confirmed At 3,263 In Past 24 Hours On Our Irish Mainland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,914 new cases of Covid-19 over the past 24 hours, here in the Irish Republic.

There are currently 413 patients in our hospitals; down two on yesterdays reported numbers, with 73 remaining in our intensive care units (ICU’s), up 3 on yesterday.

People should work from home, where possible, throughout the autumn and winter seasons, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn has stated. His advice comes as restrictions on returning to the workplace were supposed to be lifted next Friday, October 22nd.

There now have been 11,755 confirmed cases of the virus recorded in the Irish Republic within the past seven days. Deaths are currently being announced weekly due to the HSE data breach last May, however, as of Wednesday, 5,306 people have died so far here in the Irish Republic with Covid-19.

In Northern Ireland, their Department of Health has also confirmed a further 1,349 cases of the virus, with sadly, 4 further deaths of patients who had previously tested positive for the virus disease.

Earlier today, there were 348 Covid-positive patients in northern hospitals, with 37 in their intensive care units.

Choosing to get vaccinated is an act of protection for yourself, as it may save your life; but it is also an act of solidarity with others; the more of us that get vaccinated, the safer we all will be.
