Covid-19 Cases at 3,571 In Past 24 Hours On Island Of Ireland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 2,148 new cases of Covid-19, over the past 24 hours here within the Irish Republic.

There are 464 patients with Covid-19 here in our hospital; and of these 86 are in intensive care units (ICUs).

Sixty three deaths have also been notified since last Wednesday, bringing to 5,369 the total number of deaths related to Covid-19 occuring in our Republic.

The Chief Medical Officer, Dr Tony Holohan has stated: “Disease incidence is high and increasing across the country and across all age groups. However, vaccination has helped us prevent many serious illnesses and deaths”.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn has correctly informed a NPHET briefing that it appears in recent weeks, one in every four people have stopped in their own basic protective measures, e.g. mask wearing, social distancing and hand hygiene.

In Northern Ireland, their Department of Health has confirmed a further 1,423 cases of the virus, in the past 24 hours, together with, sadly 6 further deaths of patients who had previously tested positive for the virus.

There remain 355 Covid-positive patients in hospital in Northern Ireland, with 33 of these patients in northern 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.
