Covid Cases Confirmed At 2,180 In Irish Republic.

The Department of Health has confirmed 2,180 new cases of Covid-19 here in the Republic of Ireland in the past 24 hours.

There are 406 people being treated in our hospitals for the virus, down seven on yesterday’s figures, with the number of people in intensive care units at 71, down two on yesterday’s figures also.

Immunologist Professor Kingston Mills has stated that any decision on the further reopening of society should include extending the use of Covid vaccine certs.
Professor Mills believes the reason the cases are currently so high here in the Republic of Ireland is down to several factors, including Ireland’s proximity to Northern Ireland and the UK, where the virus remains somewhat out of control.

Northern Ireland
Another 1,218 cases of the virus were also notified by the Department of Health in Northern Ireland today, down from 1,349 yesterday.

The latest hospital figures show there are 348 patients with Covid-19 in hospitals in Northern Ireland today, with 37 patients in intensive care beds, both figures unchanged since yesterday.

Sadly, 4 more coronavirus-related deaths have been reported today in Northern Ireland also.

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.
