Covid-19 Cases At 2,346 On Island of Ireland In 24 hours.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,380 new cases of Covid-19 in the past 24 hours, here in the Irish Republic.

The number of people in our hospitals stands at 459, up 53 patients on yesterday’s reported figures. There are 74 patients being treated in our intensive care units for the virus, up a further 3 persons over the same period.

Immunologist Professor Luke O’Neill has stated that persons aged over 60 should be given a Covid-19 booster vaccine as soon as possible. With around a 40% increase in Covid-19 hospitalisations in under three weeks; he further stated that the data from Israel is compelling and it would be effective to ensure people have further protection from the virus. There also should be a rapid deployment of the booster campaign, just as soon as the National Immunisation Advisory Council (NIAC) gives same the green light, he commented.

In Northern Ireland, 966 new cases were confirmed by their Department of Health, together with, sadly, a further 4 deaths also confirmed.

Same brings to 2,346 the number of new virus cases reported here on the island of Ireland, over the past 24 hours.

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.
