The Irish State broadcaster RTE is reporting this morning that there are less than 500 coronavirus patients in the country’s hospitals. The exact figure is 494. However, Ireland’s scientific advisers will hear no talk of lifting restrictions and the Irish media is silent.
There were 508 cases in hospitals on January 1st. The Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) claims that the number rose during January to a peak of 2,020 cases on 18 January, the highest number seen in hospitals during any of the three waves in Ireland.
“The wave we’ve just had, that huge burden of disease is coming to an end, the impact on the hospitals is coming to an end. But all we have done is dealt with that problem. We need to keep going in terms of bringing the case numbers down further to give us options for the future.”
Ireland’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn, said that parents should wear masks while dropping their children off at school. Irish schools began a phased reopening yesterday. It is not formally recommended that children under 13 should wear a mask, he said, but any child who wants to wear a mask should not be discouraged.
Glynn told RTE that the issue of younger children wearing masks will be discussed by NPHET this week. As things stand only secondary school pupils must wear masks in class. I am amazed that there has been such little resistance to it from Irish parents.
These totally unnecessary tyrannical restrictions are all about applying maximum pressure on people to take vaccines that they do NOT need and that may very well do them serious harm. The media in Ireland is as inept and as corrupt as it is here in the UK.
