Coronavirus: 3,138 new cases confirmed in Ireland

The latest numbers for Covid-19 cases in Ireland have been released.

HEALTH OFFICIALS HAVE confirmed a further 3,138 cases of Covid-19 in Ireland.

As of 8am today, there were 643 Covid-19 patients in hospital, 118 of whom are in intensive care.

Yesterday, 4,650 new cases of Covid-19 were reported and 643 people with the virus were in hospital, including 118 in ICU.

Officials also said on Wednesday that a further 43 deaths related to the virus have been notified in the past week. This brings to 5,609 the number of people who have died with Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

Deaths related to Covid-19 are being announced on a weekly basis but this does not necessarily mean all deaths confirmed on Wednesday occurred in the past week, as the system in Ireland allows a period of time for deaths to be registered.
