The Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has said that the high mortality rate the country is experiencing at the moment is related to a surge in cases several weeks ago.
Speaking about the record number of deaths Ireland sadly experienced on Tuesday, Dr Holohan said the high mortality we are experiencing today is related to the surge in cases weeks ago.
Dr Holohan said that the number of hospital and ICU admissions was also a direct result of the surge.
He went on to say that the best way people can honour those who sadly passed away is to follow public health guidelines and stay at home.
He added that there is a long way to go and the incidence rate needs to significantly fall over the coming weeks ahead.
The Chief Medical Officer’s comments came after Ireland sadly recorded a record of 101 deaths on Tuesday.
