ROI weekly update.

Cases 2221 (149 fewer cases than last week)
In hospital 49 (13 fewer than a week ago)
In ICU 15 (7 fewer than last Sunday)

Encouraging….at a time when we are seeing numbers creeping up elsewhere…

Great to see Sam McConkey crawling out a few weeks before indoor dining is allowed. I'm not sure if it will go ahead on July 5th myself. Hopefully I'm wrong on this.

It will go ahead so long as the hospital situation stays in a very stable position. 39 in hospital and 13 in ICU at the moment.

At least someone realises the risk.

Don't know why they don't just knock international travel on the head for all but the most essential.

Eventually, somewhere, with the current way of going, it will mutate to be largely outside of the vaccine's attack vectors - and then there'll be hell to pay if things remain as open as they are (w.r.t international travel).

Hospital cases remain low. No one in Covid ICU in the North. The vaccines work. I'm due to get my 2nd one next week. I think the governments realise that another 3 or 4 weeks most people over 30 will have had both jabs.
If a new variant emerges we will have to tweak the vaccine. Covid isn't going away but we now have a proven workable solution.
