1,501 New Cases Of COVID-19 In Ireland Today


There have been 1,501 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Ireland today - the highest figure in over six months.

The five-day moving average now stands at 1,347.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn earlier said the five counties with the highest 14-day incidence rate are now Donegal (954 per 100,000), Louth (633), Galway (516), Laois (496) and Monaghan (443).

As of this morning, there were 169 patients with COVID-19 in Irish hospitals, including 23 in ICU.

Over 86% of Irish adults have received at least one dose of a vaccine, with over 71% fully vaccinated.

Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tony Holohan said: “This week vaccination is open to anyone over the age of 16 and those aged 12-15 will be able to register soon. Walk-in vaccination centres are now available for those yet to receive a first dose.

“If you have a child with an underlying medical condition, that is living in a household where there are other people at risk, please avail of vaccination at the earliest opportunity."

This weekend will see the opening of the country’s first walk-in vaccination centres for people aged 16 or older who’ve yet to receive their first dose.

There’ll be at least one centre in each county.
