THE Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been notified of 6,061 PCR-confirmed cases of Covid-19.
In addition, on Wednesday, February 2, 6,814* people registered a positive antigen test through the HSE portal.
As of 8am today, 610 Covid-19 patients are hospitalised, of which 63 are in the intensive care unit.
Given the current high incidence, the daily case number is based on positive SARS-CoV-2 results uploaded to the HSE COVID Care Tracker the preceding day. These data are provisional. The HPSC and surveillance partners will continue to notify and process cases and outbreaks of Covid-19 on CIDR over this period.
*These data are provisional and are not directly comparable with laboratory PCR confirmed SARS-CoV-2 cases registered through the HSE Covid Care Tracker.
Separately, there were 54 people on trolleys at University Hospital Limerick this Thursday.
