Covid-19 Cases Reach 4,828 On Irish Mainland Today.

The Department of Health has confirmed 3,138 new cases of Covid-19 in the past 24 hours, here in the Republic of Ireland.

There were 643 people in hospital with Covid-19, and of these 118 people are being treated in ICUs.

Canada has now authorised the use of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine for children aged between five to 11, thus paving the way for the inoculation of primary children across the country.

Infectious Disease Consultant Professor Sam McConkey has stated that there is an epidemic of the unvaccinated and a large epidemic in the under 12 year olds, who haven’t been offered the vaccine.

Meanwhile, Israel will begin vaccinating children aged 5 to 11 against Covid-19 from Tuesday, Prime Minister Mr Naftali Bennett has stated. Israeli data has shown that administering Pfizer/BioNTech booster shots has widely slowed virus transmission.

The American Food and Drug Administration has authorised booster doses of Covid-19 vaccines for all adults just six months after individuals have been fully vaccinated with the shots from either Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna. Nearly 60% of adult Americans or some 195.6 million people are considered fully vaccinated.

In a statement, Dr Holohan has warned that people with symptoms must stay at home, self-isolate and get a PCR test – not an antigen test.

In Northern Ireland a further 1,690 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed today, up from 1,681 yesterday.

There are 410 patients with Covid-19 in northern hospitals with 33 of these patients in hospital intensive care units.
Sadly, 7 Covid-19-related deaths have been reported in Northern Ireland also today.
