Today, Killer Covid-19 Cases Stand At 10,404 In Irish Republic.

With no figures available for Northern Ireland at time of going to press, the Department of Health has confirmed at least 10,404 new cases of Covid-19 over the past 24 hours, here in the Irish Republic.

There are 426 people in hospital who have tested positive for the virus, representing a further rise of 48 cases since yesterday and of these, 91 cases are in our ICUs around the country, up 4 on yesterday’s reported figures.

The Department of Health estimates that 83% of cases confirmed can now be attributable to the Omicron variant.

More than 6,000 overseas flights have been cancelled worldwide over the Christmas weekend and over 8,500 thousand more were delayed, as the highly infectious Omicron variant brings holiday distress to many.

Vaccination centres, here in our Republic, will resume service on Monday 27th December.

In Northern Ireland today, new coronavirus restrictions are being introduced to try to combat rising Covid cases.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has yet to announce any further rules for England, but has indicated that he will not hesitate to act after Christmas, if required, amid rising cases of the Omicron variant.

Time to cancel now and celebrate later, rather than celebrate now and grieve later.
