59 patients total with covid-19 in Irish hospitals, only 23 in ICU – HSE

The number of patients in Irish hospitals with covid-19 has dropped to 59 – the lowest number since September.

Comparatively, at the peak of the third wave on the 18th of January, there were 2,020 people in hospital being treated with covid-19 in hospitals across Ireland.

HSE Chief Paul Reid hailed the development.

“Covid-10 inpatients continues [sic] an amazing decline,” he said.

“Down to 59 cases with 23 of those in ICU.”

He added: “St James Hospital, Dublin have zero #covid19 inpatients today. The first time since March 2020.”

Reid attributed this drop in hospitalisations to the vaccine rollout, as did Professor Philip Nolan chair of the Irish Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group.

According to Nolan, there have only been 9 people admitted to ICU in the past 2 weeks.
