Caution…Covid threat again in Ireland. The number of COVID sufferers is on rise

Dublin: Ireland is under the threat of COVID again. Following an increase in the number of people presenting to hospitals with COVID symptoms, the government has issued a warning. Within a week, the number of people seeking treatment for COVID-19 increased dramatically. Meanwhile, due to an increase in COVID cases, St. Luke’s Hospital in Kilkenny has temporarily banned visitors.

In one week, there were 419 new COVID cases.

The Department of Health confirmed 419 new COVID cases between the 23rd and the 29th of last month. This represents a 51% increase over the previous week.

As of the third day of this month, 10 COVID patients were in the ICU. Last month, only one person was admitted to the intensive care unit. However, according to hospital records, a large number of COVID cases were reported in the first week of August.

Concerns have also been expressed that the spread of COVID-19 could result in COVID-19 outbreaks in hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare settings. The HSE has directed that all healthcare facilities review their infection control measures. Many hospitals have restricted visitors.

People with COVID symptoms should be extra careful.

The PSC advises people experiencing COVID-related symptoms to stay at home for 48 hours, even if their symptoms improve. Precautions should be taken, such as frequent hand washing, covering the mouth and nose, and coughing. Only those recommended by their doctor or a healthcare professional should be tested for COVID-19. Those experiencing symptoms should remain at home for 48 hours. The HPSC and HSE advised them to avoid work and indoor crowds.

Measures have also been taken to provide a free COVID booster dose and seasonal flu vaccine.

The Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP) said it had noticed an increase in COVID. People who have a cough, cold, or sore throat should stay at home, according to the HPSC. They should take paracetamol if they have a fever.
The ICGP advised that those with serious problems like shortness of breath should contact their GP. COVID cases decreased in May and June. The HSE, however, confirmed that they had begun to rise again by the end of June.
