Omicron Cases Reach 14,181 In Past 24 Hours On Irish Mainland.

Over the past 24 hours, the Department of Health in the Irish Republic have confirmed 9,938 Covid-19 cases; of which 5,265 are identified from PCR tests and 4,673 having logged on as having identified positive antigen tests, using the HSE portal online.

Across the Republic, there remain 708 patients in our hospitals with the virus, down 31 on yesterday’s reported figures, with the number of patients remaining in intensive care units, down three on yesterday; now standing at 71.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has conditionally approved the use of Pfizer Inc’s anti-viral Covid-19 pill, for use treating adults at high risk of severe illness. This expected endorsement for conditional approval, now allows EU member states to deploy the drug, after the regulator gave guidance for its emergency use in late 2021.

In Northern Ireland, another 4,243 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed today, down from 4,383 reported yesterday.

There were 387 patients with Covid-19 in northern hospitals, down from 395 reported yesterday, with 22 of these patients, with Covid-19, in hospital intensive care units, a figure unchanged also from yesterday.
Sadly, 6 Covid-19-related deaths have also been reported in Northern Ireland today.

Please continue the downward virus hospital trend by getting your booster vaccination dose, as soon as applicable.
