The CEO of the Health Service Executive said today, “We’re at a point of unease and apprehension as to what might happen next.”
Reid said that Covid-19 cases across the country have dropped 22% over the past fourteen days.
He went on to say that currently 38% of the adult population in Ireland is fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
Almost two-thirds of the adult population has received at least one Covid-19 vaccine.
Reid went on to say that 84% of cases recorded are under 45-years-old, which he put down to the vaccination success.
“There’s no doubt, as sure as night follows day, this is going to go in one particular direction,” Reid said.
“The truth is we don’t really know precisely how the Delta variant and other possible variants will affect us, really, at this stage.”
Reid said the increase in the Delta variant is concerning, but that growth is inevitable.
