Killer Covid-19 Cases Reach 9,408 In Last 24 Hours On Irish Mainland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 7,333 new cases of Covid-19 over the past 24 hours, in the Irish Republic, as same case figures recorded today, are the highest reported, since early January 2021.

There remain 410 Covid patients in our republics hospitals, down 10 on yesterday, while 107 patients are in ICUs across the country, up 2 from on yesterday.

An Taoiseach Mr Micheál Martin has stated that the worst of the pandemic could very well remain in front of us and the latest Covid-19 restrictions will be kept under constant review, as the Omicron variant spreads across the country.

People aged in their 40s, here in our Republic, will be eligible to get Covid-19 booster vaccinations as and from tomorrow, Sunday December 19th, 2021.

In Northern Ireland, a further 2,075 confirmed cases of the virus have also notified by their Department of Health.

Sadly, a further 5 patients, having previously tested positive for Covid-19, have lost their lives.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that the Omicron coronavirus variant has been reported in 89 countries and the number of cases doubling in between 1.5 to 3 days, in areas with community transmission.

Like Ireland, the Netherlands will also implement a lock-down over the Christmas period to try to stop a surge of the Omicron coronavirus variant, Dutch Prime Minister Mr Mark Rutte has stated, this evening. Already today Municipal Authorities in the port city of Rotterdam had urged shoppers, via Twitter, to stay at home, because the city centre was over crowded.

Ignore politicians, keyboard warriors and other self-serving morons, all claiming to be outraged and disgusted at 8:00pm hospitality closures.

There are no closing time adjustments with regards to our hospitals.

Worldwide to date, as far as it can be accurately measured, some 274,008.273 have been infected by the Covid-19 pandemic, resulting, sadly, in deaths totalling 5,348,915.
World Vaccine doses administered, amount to 8,654,835,015, according to Johns Hopkins University
