Covid-19 Cases In Past 24 Hours On Irish Mainland Reach 2,786.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,725 new cases of Covid-19 here in the Irish Republic within the past 24 hours.

There are currently 473 Covid patients in hospital, same figure up 24 on yesterday’s confirmed figure. The department has also confirmed that 97 people are now in intensive care, which is a rise of 4 as was reported yesterday.

Meanwhile, some welcome news; the number of people registering for Covid-19 vaccinations has increased, according to the HSE Chief Executive.

Health Service Executive (HSE) chief Mr Paul Reid has stated that there are no paediatric ICU beds available in the Republic and there are only 11 adult ICU beds free.

Worldwide the known total confirmed Covid-19 case numbers stands at 243,477,170, with known total deaths standing at 4,946,277. Total known vaccine doses administered todate stands at 6,798,043,785.


The number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 within the Irish Republic stands at 428,152 with, sadly, a total of 5,369 deaths.
A number of Irish hospitals have ceased or cut back elective care, due to pressure created by the high levels of Covid cases and respiratory illnesses and hospitals are facing huge demands with emergency care cases also going up, as rising numbers of people present for delayed care for Covid.

While government and HSE are using a “softly-softly” encouragement approach; most evident in their daily Covid briefings / announcements, it is obvious that a large majority of individuals are seriously failing to meet even basic public health guidelines; as in the observance of adherence to social distancing, face covering and handwashing.

In Ireland, opposition politicians from all groupings outside government and indeed some offering government support, are behaving reprehensibly and abominably in their failing to fully support the present Irish government; all whinging criticisms in their efforts to grasp at power, sadly at the expense of working communities under sentence of death from a worldwide pandemic, none of which is their fault.

In Northern Ireland, another 1,061 cases of Covid-19 virus were reported in the past 24 hours down from 1,323 on yesterday.

Sadly, today a further 5 Covid-19-related deaths have also been reported in Northern Ireland over the same time frame.
The total number of deaths linked to Covid-19 in Northern Ireland since the start of the pandemic now stands at 2,661.

As we enter into this bank holiday weekend, take particular care with the three CsCrowded places with many people nearby, Close contact settings, especially where people may not be vaccinated, and Confined and enclosed spaces with poor ventilation.
