Hospital #Covid19 patients @ approx 400 & 70 in ICU is concerning. We can reverse this rise. If unvaccinated you’re putting yourself & others at unneccessary higher risk. Do the right thing & get vaccinated. If vaccinated, please continue to be aware. Covid is still here @HSELive

Problem are the unvaccinated. If a high percentage of them were to end up in ICU we are in trouble. I have it at the moment and it’s no fun, but thank fuck I’m vaccinated

Full reopening in doubt as Covid numbers take a ‘wrong turn’ https://t.co/6syUfCcgZG

2020 – I personally know 3 people who had Covid. No vaccines.
2021 – I personally know 24 people who had / got Covid. Vaccines. All of the 24 have been vaccinated.
Something isn’t right, is it?

Minister for Higher Education Simon Harris has suggested an extension of the digital Covid certificate beyond October 22nd as a possible way of society fully reopening in a safe way.
Mr Harris said under the current proposals, the use of digital certificates was no longer required after the ending of restrictions on venues, such as nightclubs, from the end of next week.
He said: “We are not in this binary position of do we open or not to open. We have learned a lot about the virus and learned a lot about how to keep us safe. We have a huge amount of our people vaccinated.
“We should be asking more nuanced questions of each other. How can you open and keep it safely open?”
Leo Varadkar tells the Dáil if everyone was vaccinated there would probably be 25 people in ICU and 200 in hospital. Says it’s a personal decision but one that impacts other people
