According to the Health Service Executive, one in five people who are admitted to hospital with Covid-19 are vaccinated.

Chief Operations Officer at the HSE ‘Anne O’Connor’ stated that the outcomes for these patients are better while saying, “Within our hospital services, in terms of admitted patients, it’s about one in five, in terms of people who are admitted with Covid who are vaccinated.”

She added that the number of vaccinated people who are testing positive for Covid-19 has risen from 7% on Sunday to 10% yesterday.

O’Connor, who expressed concerns over the increasing number of positive cases, noted that although people who are vaccinated are being hospitalised for Covid-19, “they’re not becoming as sick, so that is a really positive thing.”

She added that not everyone who is being admitted to hospital with Covid-19 is being treated for the virus, but that their admission may be for other reasons and they happened to test positive for Covid-19.

This morning at 8am, there were 89 people in acute hospitals who tested positive for Covid-19, with 20 of them in ICU, which is down from 101 yesterday morning.

Hospitals across the country remain extremely busy with nearly 670 people in emergency departments this morning.
