There’s some encouraging news this morning as we’ve reached the end of March and we don’t have the massive surge of 15,000 predicted confirmed cases of covid-19.
Instead, the HSE announced on Monday evening that there was 295 new confirmed cases of coronavirus in the Republic of Ireland with another eight people dying.
It brings the total in the Republic of Ireland to 2,910 with the government expecting a 30% increase daily from this week.
There’s 57% of men with coronavirus and 43% of women with the average age being 47.
Meanwhile in the north, there were 123 new confirmed cases today bringing the total in Northern Ireland to 510 with one patient dying there in the last 24 hours.
It means that as of Monday morning, there are now 3,443 confirmed cases across the island of Ireland, some 12,000 short of previous predictions.
It’s not great but it’s a good start.
