Another big spike of Covid-19 cases as 1,620 confirmed, 12 further deaths


#Ireland has recorded another 1,620 new cases of #Covid-19.

#Tragically, 12 further people have tragically lost their lives.

The latest figures were released during a media briefing with the #National #Public #Health #Emergency #Team this afternoon.

#Chief #Medical #Officer #Dr #Tony #Holohan and his group of medial experts were speaking to the press for the first time since #Ireland began its third lockdown.

#Taoiseach #Micheal #Martin plunged the country back into #Level #Five after advice from the team, which is becoming increasingly concerned with spiraling case and hospital numbers.

The experts are also worried about the new UK and #South #African variants of the virus, the former of which has already been confirmed in the #Republic.

#Speaking to the nation on #Wednesday, #Mr #Martin said: “#Just eight days ago, I stood here and explained why we needed to introduce a range of strict new controls in the effort to curb this latest wave of #Covid infections.

“I explained that while we didn’t, at that stage, have evidence that the new, more virulent strain of #Covid was in our country, the safest and most responsible thing to do was to proceed on the assumption that it was already here.

“#Unfortunately, that fear proved to be correct.”
