HSE say they are struggling as 23,125 new Covid-19 cases are confirmed




 

The HSE have called for the reintroduction of mandatory mask wearing in public places as hospitals are struggling across the country.

The plea comes as 23,125 new Covid-19 cases were reported over the past 24 hours with 1,425 people in hospital with the virus.

In a statement the HSE Chief Operations Officer Anne O’Connor said that the recent surge in Covid-19 cases is having impact on hospital care as anyone admitted with the virus has to be treated on a Covid-19 ward.

Ms O’Connor said the rise in admissions is having an impact on non Covid-19 related care as certain procedures have to be cancelled.
