[Sadly, once again we had a Tipperary time wasting, politician, namely Independent TD Mattie McGrath, embarrassing his Tipperary electorate in Dáil Éireann, while claiming he had a petition with 3,000 signatures, all from people demanding that pandemic emergency powers be ended.]

This morning 1,610 patients with coronavirus were in our hospitals up from 1,605 yesterday and of these 49 are being treated in intensive care units across the Republic.

The total number of Covid-19-related deaths, since the start of the pandemic in the Republic, stands at 6,730 as per yesterday March 29th.

In Northern Ireland, a further 1,414 cases of coronavirus were reported today, down from 1,731 cases yesterday.

Remember mask-wearing, although a minor inconvenience for people, could bring this wave of the Covid-19 virus to a much faster conclusion.
