3,666 New COVID Cases In Ireland Today


3,666 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.

The five-day moving average of new cases is now 4,516 - a slight drop compared to yesterday.

According to the latest HSE figures, there are 638 patients with COVID-19 being treated in hospitals today.

It's a drop of 47 since yesterday, but still 4% higher than last Tuesday.

The number of patients in ICU, meanwhile, has risen to 130.

It's an increase of four from yesterday's figure of 126, and is 14% higher than last week.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said: “We know that the level of worry has increased to levels last seen in April this year.

"We know what we are asking people to do to help suppress the spread of disease in our communities is very difficult. If we all make a concerted effort it can make a difference.

"Our research tells us that people are listening to the public health advice and are reducing the number of people they are planning to meet, and are cancelling social events, to reduce their contacts."
