On Friday, the Department of Health revealed that it has been notified of another 3,498 cases of COVID-19 in the Republic of Ireland, as well as 50 further fatalities related to the disease.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Northern Ireland Department of Health reported a further 1,145 individuals have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 24 hours.

1,119 of the cases are in Dublin, 416 in Cork, 200 in Galway, 182 in Louth, 169 in Waterford, and the remaining 1,483 cases are spread across all other counties.

A total of 236 - down 11 - Covid patients are now in hospitals in the Southern Trust area; 167 in Craigavon; 50 in Daisy Hill; 17 in Lurgan and two in South Tyrone.

Dr Holohan added: 'Anyone who has travelled from Brazil in the last 14 days is advised to self-isolate for 14 days from the date of arrival, and identify themselves, through a GP, for testing as soon as possible.

Chief Medical Officers Dr Michael McBride and Dr Tony Holohan said: "As CMOs, we are gravely concerned about the unsustainably high level of COVID-19 infection we are experiencing on the island of Ireland".

The number of deaths reported on a given day, therefore, does not necessarily mean that a person with Covid-19 died within the previous 24-hour period or even the preceding few days. Sadly, what we are seeing now is a result of the very high daily confirmed case numbers we experienced for successive weeks.

"We are particularly appealing to employers to enable their employees to protect each other by staying at home for the full 14 days".

The 63 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases bring the total number of cases on record for the island to 13,915.

While Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the Irish Epidemiological Modelling Advisory Group, explained: "From an epidemiological perspective, what we are seeing in this wave is different to what we have seen since springtime, and perhaps worse". The penetration of the virus throughout all ages of the population is a particular cause for serious concern, as is risk of severe disease that all of these people face.

"Poor health outcomes, risk of serious or long-term illness and hospitalisation remain a risk for us all when it comes to COVID-19. There is no evidence of these variants in Ireland". We must stay home to protect ourselves and each other'. We also expect that more variants will emerge across the world in the coming months. We must all continue to adhere to every element of the public health advice.
