The Department of Health’s latest release of figures shows that a suspected Covid-19 case is being treated at Mayo University Hospital’s intensive care unit

Figures released by the Department of Health show that the Intensive Care Unit at Mayo University Hospital is currently treating a patient with suspected Covid-19.
It’s one of three suspected cases and ten confirmed cases of Covid-19 in ICUs across the country.
Releasing their latest data on Sunday evening, the Department confirmed that one positive case of Covid-19 was being treated at Sligo University Hospital and that there is another suspected case in ICU at Portiuncla Hospital in Ballinasloe. Dublin continues to harbour the bulk of the cases but with a confirmed case in Cork’s ICU unit and a suspected case too in the Midland Regional Hospital, Portlaoise, the nationwide spread should serve as a reminder that coronavirus has not gone away and that good personal hygiene must be maintained as the country continues to ease away from its restrictive phases.
Of the ten patients in Irish intensive care units who have been confirmed as having Covid-19, seven are on ventilators.
With no further deaths related to the pandemic recorded in the 24-hours up to yesterday evening, it means Ireland’s coronavirus death toll remains at 1,741.
