The number of patients on trolleys has almost doubled this October when compared to the same time period in 2020, the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation has claimed. They say overcrowding at MUH during the month of October reached record levels.

The number of confirmed Covid-19 patients at MUH stands at 18 (unchanged from the previous day). Three Covid-10 patients were being treated in ICU at MUH. The hospital had no available general or ICU beds.
