Wuhan Wheeze

If you got to the last paragraph that tells you all you need to know

"There are also questions about the methods used in the paper. Only 22 studies were included in the review and some were discarded for seemingly trivial reasons, which led to accusations the authors 'cherry-picked' studies."

Rising cases of Covid-19 risk “increased pressure on the hospital system” in the coming weeks, reducing capacity for patients suffering from other ailments or needing emergency treatment, Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has been warned.

In an update on the pandemic to Mr Donnelly, chief medical officer Dr Tony Holohan wrote that the “acute hospital system remains under considerable pressure”.

The update was written on June 10th – when there were 355 inpatients with Covid-19 across the country’s hospitals. Since then, that figure has risen to 515 as of 8am on Friday morning.

“If the rising trend in hospital cases continues, we are likely to see increased pressure on the hospital system over the coming weeks. This will further reduce hospital capacity to admit patients for scheduled and unscheduled care,” Dr Holohan told the Minister.

He said that while mortality associated with the disease remains relatively stable, “there has been a recent increase in the number of notified outbreaks in some key settings which continues to be monitored”.
