I heard a snippet on the radio where Stephen Donnelly said that Covid cases were on the increase again in the community recently. Looking at the figures this does not seem to be the case. https://epi-covid-19-hpscireland.hub.arcgis.com/

Is this really the case or is this just a way to get people to take up the new vaccinations as we approach winter.

Anyone have first hand information?

405 cases of Covid-19 were confirmed in Irish hospitals this morning... It marks an increase of 23% from 329 cases last week and a 74% increase compared to the week prior.

No requirement to report cases now. Both myself and herself finally succumbed to it last week.

4 days of feeling really crap followed by a few days of low energy. Only back at 80% now.


From HSE

You do not need a test if you are:

under 55 years of age with symptoms of COVID-19 and you are otherwise healthy
age 55 or older and you are fully boosted, even if you have symptoms of COVID-19

I got a text from HSE to say I was close contact, I know for a fact that I couldn't have been because I was literally home for three solid days with kids and no visitors!!! are they hunting for cases or what??

Don't have first hand info on COVID.
But I do have COVID, currently.

This is my 3rd bout. Fairly whacked (as I have been each time) despite being young and healthy. I've had all vaccines except for the latest booster...

Unable to work the past few days. It's a nasty illness. I've the height of sympathy for those with long COVID.

Registered a DIY Antigen with HSE. Got a confirmation text.

I might have the Covid at the moment.
I wonder are the test kits up to date with the latest variant?

I wonder are the covid lockdowns also responsible for the synchronisation of the covid and flu waves with everyone getting sick at the same time.
