A further 1,845 new situations of Covid-19 reported

The Department of Health has reported 1,845 new situations of Covid-19. The number of patients being treated in hospital was 497 as of 8am on Monday, it said, with 99 in ICU.

News of the latest figures came as the HSE’s National Director for the vaccination programme said about 2,000 people have been registering for a Covid-19 vaccine over recent days. Damien McCallion said since Thursday the figures have doubled from around 800 to 1,000 people registering daily.

Mr McCallion told RTÉ Radio’s Morning Ireland programme on Monday that a national campaign will run over the next 10 days encouraging those who have in addition come forward for a Covid-19 vaccine to do so.

He said that over 60 per cent of the people being treated in intensive care (ICU) are unvaccinated.

Mr McCallion said the campaign will focus on those who are medically unprotected and deemed high risk along with others who have received their first measure but not their second and some who registered but didn’t receive the vaccine.
