The HSE Chief Executive Paul Reid has said there are now 921 people with Covid-19 in hospital.
This number has now exceeded the peak level last spring of 881.
In a Tweet Mr Reid said:
“With 921 people in hospital, we’ve now exceeded the peak level of the 1st wave (881). 75 in ICU. Healthy people are getting very sick.
Everyone gets how serious this is now. Let’s all do what’s needed, turn this around, save lives, whilst the vaccine arrives. We have to.”
