About 650 people are in critical condition in Ireland – Health Department

DUBLIN: Paul Reid, HSE Chief Executive Officer, reveals that 650 COVID-19 patients admitted to hospitals in Ireland are suffering from serious health problems.

CEO said that hospitals in the country are going through a critical period.

Given the delay in the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, the country will have to maintain restrictions until June, the chief executive said.

He explained that health workers are fighting to keep patients alive through better care. It is reassuring that for the first time since January 1, the number of new COVID patients dropped to 2,000.
