HSE CEO Paul Reid has said Covid-19 numbers are stabilising across the country, but still present huge risk.
He said the number of people in hospital with the virus is reducing, but the numbers are “still too high”.
Reid went on to say the virus is having a “highly disproportionate impact” on the healthcare system, and the HSE is going into December on “high alert”.
4,163 cases of Covid-19 were reported in Ireland today.
The HSE’s chief clinical officer Dr. Colm Henry said the reduction in case numbers among age groups who received booster vaccines was a “cause for hope”.
“We are seeing a falling number of cases in those who had access to boosters, particularly in the very elderly age group,” he said.
