Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer of the Department of Health, said:
“I am increasingly concerned about the growing incidence of the disease nationwide. Our main goal now must be to protect the most vulnerable against COVID-19.
“We are seeing a continued increase in hospitalizations and intensive care admissions – a significant number of which are not fully immunized – placing our frontline health services, including non-COVID care, under significant pressure.
“It is essential that we do everything we can to break the chains of transmission of the Delta variant, in the community, in the workplace and in our homes. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, even though you are vaccinated, please stay home, isolate yourself from others, and arrange a free test immediately.
“If you haven’t already, please choose to protect yourself by taking advantage of your free COVID-19 vaccine, which will significantly reduce your risk of serious illness if you contract the disease.
“The vaccine, our best defense against COVID-19, is not the only tool we have to curb the spread of the disease. Please continue to wash your hands regularly, cover your coughs and sneezes, open windows and ensure spaces are well ventilated, wear masks in public transport, shops, indoor workplaces and outdoor areas crowded, and keeping a safe distance of 2 m from others as much as possible. possible.”
