Thurles Covid Incidence Cases Rise From 54 To 215 In Early Days Of November 2021.

As previously published, on November 12th last, the 14 Day incidence of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Local Electoral Areas (LEAs) here in Co. Tipperary, between October 26th 2021 and November 8th, 2021 were reasonably low, but obviously on the rise.

Note Also: the figures then shown in red represented the previous 14 day incidence rate, between the period October 19th, 2021 and November 1st, 2021, in same local electoral areas (LEAs).
In each of the Tipperary LEAs the incidence rates had substantially increased and in the case of the Thurles LEA confirmed figures; same had doubled in just seven days, noticeably over the Halloween holiday festival period.

These figures published on November 12th last then read: –

Newport 105, (83)Thurles 109, (54)Roscrea/Templemore 149, (82)Clonmel 126, (71)Cashel/Tipperary 176, (117)Cahir 229, (174)Carrick-on-Suir 234, (167), – Nenagh 278, (228).

The 14 Day incidence of confirmed COVID-19 cases by same local electoral areas (LEAs), in Tipperary, between November 2nd 2021 and November 15th 2021, now demonstrate the need for Tipperary residents to listen to the wisdom of the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) and the Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health, Dr Tony Holohan.

Read the true facts and compare the major increases in the new incidence rates published in the 14 days between November 2nd 2021 and November 15th 2021, shown hereunder: –

Newport 150; – Clonmel 150; – Roscrea/Templemore 179; – Cashel/Tipperary 180; – Cahir 200; – Carrick-On-Suir 213; – Thurles 215; – Nenagh 317;

As people can see, the Thurles LEA incident rate, in November to date has increased from being the lowest in the county, with just 54 cases; to being the second highest in Co. Tipperary, with 215 cases.

Same increases were greatly assisted by Halloween festivities/activities and the fully opening up of the hospitality sector.

A survey from the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), confirmed in early November, that the number of people not having Covid passes checked in pubs, and nightclubs, as was then requested, had shot up from 21% to 37%, thus greatly contributing to the pandemic increases we are experiencing countrywide today.
