Covid-19 Cases In Past 24 Hours Reach 3,870 On Irish Mainland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 2,549 new cases of Covid-19 over the past 24 hours here in the Irish Republic.

There are 481 patients in hospital with the virus, down 6 over the same time reported on yesterday. Of these, 97 people are being treated in our ICUs countrywide, latter number down 2 on yesterday.

Meanwhile abroad, airports in Beijing were forced to cancel hundreds of flights as travel rules were tightened across China in an effort to tackle virus clusters as the capital gears up to host the Winter Olympics.

In Northern Ireland, their Department of Health has reported another 1,321 cases of the virus, together with, sadly, 7 further deaths of patients who had previously tested positive for the Covid-19 virus.

As of this morning, there were 351 Covid-positive patients in northern hospitals, of whom 34 were in intensive care units.

NPHET continues to urge people here in the Irish Republic who have been offered a vaccine, to take it and importantly to make sure to present themselves for their second vaccine dose.

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.
