Not only in our country, but also in the north of Europe, it is difficult with a pandemic. And Christmas is to blame!
Almost like with us
In Ireland, which has a population of less than five million, more than 45,700 new cases of coronavirus infections have occurred in the last seven days. This is more than the total number of infected from last March to October. The seven-day moving median reached 1,394 cases per million inhabitants, while on 12 December it was 52.31. Ireland thus surpassed Great Britain (810), Portugal (735), the USA (653) and Germany (248).
Ireland also leads the population in cases. It is followed by the Czech Republic, Slovenia and the United Kingdom.
Because of the holidays
Experts attribute the sharp deterioration to the situation, in particular the relaxation of measures during the Christmas and New Year holidays, as well as the introduction of a more infectious variant of the virus, which was first detected in England.
Ireland has had more than 152,000 cases and 2,352 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
