Covid-19 Update: Sat. 23rd Jan. 2021 – 77 Deaths – 1,910 New Cases

Only YOU can stop the current chain of transmission.

The Department of Health have confirmed this evening that, sadly, there have been 77 further deaths caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; leaving the overall death toll, here in the Republic of Ireland, remaining at 2,947.

We further learn that there have been 1,910 new additional virus cases reported in the republic today. This leaves the current total number of confirmed cases, since conception in the Irish Republic, at 186,184.

Of today’s cases nationally; 710 are in Dublin, 150 in Cork, 103 in Meath, 102 in Limerick, 86 in Louth, with the remaining 759 cases located across all other counties.

To recent date, there have been 4044 killer Covid-19 cases confirmed in Tipperary since the pandemic began. (Data relevant up to midnight on Thursday, January 21, 2021.)

There are over 1,892 people with Covid-19 in hospital, and of that number, 217 people are in ICU’s, according to Ireland’s COVID-19 Data Hub.

Sadly, there have been 12 more coronavirus-related deaths recorded by the Department of Health in Northern Ireland. This brings the official death toll there, since the pandemic began, to 1,716. There have also been 670 new cases of Covid-19 confirmed, with 810 in hospitals and of these 66 are in intensive care units

An Taoiseach Mr Micheál Martin has stated that not all of our one million students, here in Ireland, will be going back in school before St Patrick’s Day.

The Minister for Health, Mr Stephen Donnelly, has described delays in the supply of the AstraZeneca vaccine over the coming months, as a real setback to Irish vaccination plans. Yesterday the British pharmaceutical company warned that supplies of its coronavirus vaccine to Europe will be lower than originally anticipated, due to reduced production at a manufacturing site.

Total global cases up to 5.30pm this evening, are now standing at well over 98.4 million confirmed cases, with global deaths well over 2.11 million.
