In Irish Republic, Covid-19 Cases Up 60% In last 14 Days.

The number of people with Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland’s hospitals has risen significantly, by some 60% over the past 14 days.

As of this morning, there were 957 patients with the virus, in our Republic’s hospitals, with virus numbers rising by 62 within the past 24 hours, and up 72 on Friday’s confirmed figure.

This confirmed figure represents the highest level in just under eight weeks, since mid-January, when it stood at 979.

Before noon today, there were 41 people suffering from this virus in intensive care units around the country, up 4 on the number reported on Friday.

In Northern Ireland today, a further 1,669 cases of coronavirus were reported, down from 2,032 cases on yesterday, while sadly 2 more Covid-19-related deaths have also been reported today.

Research suggests that more than 18 million people or three times higher than official records confirm, have possibly died due to the coronavirus.
America’s Washington State University have studied 191 countries and territories for what they call the true global death figure.
Their report comes two years to the day marking when the World Health Organization first declared a global pandemic.

Let’s get back to sanitising hands and wearing masks, while out shopping and in attendance at other public crowded gatherings.
