LATEST: 1,592 new cases of virus confirmed
A further 1,598 people have contracted the coronavirus, the Department of Health confirmed this evening.
That’s a decrease of 94 on yesterday’s total.
The number of people with the virus in hospital has been recorded at 314, an increase of 53 on yesterday’s numbers.
There are 59 patients in intensive care, up five on yesterday.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr Tony Holohan, said: “Over the course of the last seven days, 32 people with COVID-19 were admitted to critical care facilities and today, there are a total of 60 people with COVID-19 receiving critical care.
“The median age of those in ICU is 55 – this means that 50% of the patients currently in ICU with COVID-19 are aged less than 55 years.
“Over the weekend, we reported that the number of newly confirmed COVID-19 cases in hospital in a single day had reached a level not seen since mid-February this year.
“Unfortunately, all of this indicates that we are still not at the peak of this wave of COVID-19 and that many people continue to experience severe illness due to COVID-19.
“While our vaccination programme continues to offer great hope, at this point in time, only 53% of 16- to 29-year-olds are fully vaccinated. This age group continues to account for the highest incidence of COVID-19 in our population,” Dr Holohan concluded.
Elena Sanchez says:
I am Elena, in Sao Paulo Brazil. My son was diagnosed with diabetes 2008. He is in his late 30’s. He urinates a lot, usually during the night and his blood sugar was 600. I do not know where he could have inherited it. Since then I have worked on finding a good way to control it or reverse it. I was introduced to Dr.Sambo online, after reading good reviews on his herbal medicines. And ever since My son used the diabetes herbal formula I purchased online from Doctor SAMBO November last year. After 2 weeks of usage, his diabetes was totally reversed, blood sugar now normal and his last A-1C was 4.0 perfect. I want to use this medium to advise anyone who has a similar problem, be it cancer, fibroid, HIV, hepatitis, herpes, miscarriages, genital warts, ulcer, arthritis, premature ejaculation, infertility, the list goes on.
