Mask Wearing Predicted To Be Introduced To Combat Future Covid-19 Virus.

Co. Tipperary has third highest number of PCR-confirmed cases in the last 14 days in the Irish Republic.

Figures provided by the Government’s Covid-19 data hub indicate that 1,207 positive PCR results were notified yesterday, together with 2,501 positive antigen test results.

This latest data brings the Covid death toll in the Irish Republic to 7,571, while a total of 1,628,745 cases have been confirmed, since the initial onset of the pandemic.

Figures available as of yesterday morning, indicate that there were 1,018 people in hospital with the virus, with 45 patients receiving treatment in Intensive Care Units across the State.

Co. Laois is the county with the highest number of PCR-confirmed cases in the last 14 days standing at 785.2 cases per 100,000 people. This is followed closely by Co. Waterford at 706.7, and Co. Tipperary at 696.9.

New figures, published in the United Kingdom, show that more than 200,000 people have had Covid-19 recorded on their death certificates, since the start of the pandemic.

Above figures come amid predictions that mask-wearing could return later this year in an effort to further tackle the spread of the killer virus.

    Michael. I have never worn a mask or got any injections like so many here. I honestly believe if you have got a good immune system and eat the right food it all should turn out well. That said I suppose every one to there own choice.
    Keep safe and look after one another. Keeps away from crowds.
