This time last year, Ireland was in a Level 5 lockdown after cases skyrocketed in the third wave. There was massive pressure on the government to ease restrictions and eventually on November 27th 2020, Ireland exited Level 5 lockdown and eased back to Level 3 for the run up to the Christmas period.
Having said that, we had no vaccine – a promise that would see the country coming out of the pandemic and not another lockdown again.
This week, one year on, we have more than 90% of the adult population fully vaccinated and the threat of lockdown is higher than ever.
On 17th of November 2020, we reported 366 cases of covid.
On 17th of November 2021, we reported 3,633 cases of covid.
We’re now more than likely looking down the barrel of a lockdown either before or over Christmas into the New Year with practically no changes made to ICU bed numbers to counteract such. The vaccine simply isn’t working like it was supposed to.
Politicians and so-called medical experts may lie – but the numbers don’t.
