Mandatory Vaccination in Ireland
This comes as there are more than 1,000 COVID patients in hospital for the first time since February 10th, the head of the HSE has told Newstalk Breakfast.
Paul Reid said there are 82 in intensive care, which is down one on yesterday and down five on this day last week.
It comes as daily case numbers have broken 20,000 for four days in a row – and Mr Reid said the health service is struggling with staff shortages.
“Unfortunately, overnight, we received the milestone number of just over 1,000,” he said. “There are 1,004 COVID-positive patients in hospital and just 82 in ICU.
“It is a milestone we were hoping we wouldn’t see happening, but it has happened.
