The World Health Organisation has warned that Ireland may see another Covid surge in a matter of weeks, as Dr. David Nabarro says hospitals will face more pressure.
The WHO's special envoy on Covid-19 said hospitals will likely face “a lot of illness” as case numbers begin to increase again.
Predictions from the World Health Organisation (WHO) that Ireland will face another surge in Covid-19 cases as the summer arrives are “a bit disturbing,” Professor Luke O’Neill has said.
The WHO's special envoy on Covid-19, Dr David Nabarro, warned on Wednesday that Ireland will see another surge in four to six weeks.
The Department of Health today reported 2,370 cases of Covid-19. Of these, 1,149 were PCR-confirmed while 1,221 people registered a positive antigen test through the HSE portal.
The number of Covid-19 patients in Irish hospitals fell to the lowest point of the year this morning.
There are 412 people currently hospitalised, compared to over 1,600 on the same day last month.
Of these, 36 are being treated in intensive care.
The latest wave of the virus – likely the largest to date due to the lifting of all restrictions and the scaling-back of the test and trace system – only receded this month, with hospitalisations falling to the lowest level of the year this morning.
However, Prof O’Neill, who is a professor of biochemistry at Trinity College Dublin and a member of the new Covid-19 Advisory Group replacing the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet), said he also believes the situation will worsen once again.
“The trajectory of the virus would suggest we’re going to get a surge,” he told Newstalk radio.
“Now, we’d be pretty confident there’ll be one in September because as we head back into the autumn and the winter and so on, the case numbers should go up.
“But it’s a bit disturbing it’s in three months in a way, because that’s the thick of summer. I’m not quite sure how they’ve got that, but I suspect it’s these graphs they draw and they see the trajectory and they can predict the surge.”
The WHO’s Dr Nabarro earlier told Newstalk that Ireland can expect a new surge every three to four months for the foreseeable future, but the size of the wave will remain unpredictable.
“It does seem to be about four months, the frequency, but the size of the surge is hard to predict,” he said.
“It’s partly to do with the number of people in the community that are susceptible, and it’s partly to do with the virus itself – has it developed a new ferocity.”
Dr Nabarro said surges will come as immunity to the virus, either through vaccination or infection, wanes over time.
The Office for National Statistics has revealed without realising it that children are up to 52 times more likely to die following Covid-19 vaccination than children who have not had the Covid-19 vaccine.
Back on 20th Dec 21, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published a dataset containing details on ‘deaths by vaccination status in England’ between 1st Jan and 31st Oct 21.
The dataset contains various tables showing details such as, ‘Monthly age-standardised mortality rates by vaccination status for deaths involving COVID-19’, and ‘Monthly age-standardised mortality rates by vaccination status for non-COVID-19 deaths’.
What the dataset also includes is ‘age-standardised mortality rates by age-group and vaccination status for all deaths’, however they have conveniently left out the data for children, and only included data on age groups over the age of 18.
"In this [DOD] database... the rise in congenital malformations increased dramatically, from a baseline rate of 10,906 cases per year in 2021... to 18,951 congenital malformations for [just] part of the year of 2021. For part of the year of 2021, [congenital malformations] nearly doubled in the fetuses of our brave women... who submitted to what our President said they had to do. As the Commander-in-Chief [forced] this experimental vaccine, their babies suffered! Their babies suffered!"

Most crucially of all, the academy no longer serves as an arena for the determination of truth. Many, perhaps most, academics no longer believe in the ontological existence of 'truth', per se; to them there are only models, language games, power dynamics, an abstract hyper-reality in which the signifier points only to the signifier, the signified having been long since forgotten.
Instead of truth, there is rigid dogma enforced on a myriad of topics, deviation from which will not be tolerated. Academics compete not in their ability to determine a more profound, more subtle, or more unifying attempt at the truth, but rather in the enthusiasm with which they enforce and elaborate whatever dogma their particular discipline has been tasked with advancing. It is not better in those few disciplines which do not yet have primary responsibility for upholding a politically important component of the Great Narrative; far from being free to do as they will in an atmosphere of benign neglect, they are expected to be jacks of all trades, advancing not one dogma but all of them. Thus a geophysicist whose nominal field of study is the seismological tomography of Earth's mantle plumes, a subject having nothing to do with gender, feminism, climate change, or the coronavirus, is also expected to be a vigorous advocate of feminism, anti-racism, climate justice, and sustainability, an ally to the PLGBT community1, a crusader against the dread coronavirus and an enthusiastic promoter of mRNA transfection, and most recently a steely-eyed opponent of Vladimir Putin2.
A functioning academy would have pointed to the objections against PCR testing raised by the Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, who was awarded the prize for his invention of polymerase chain reaction genetic sequencing technology. Mullis had long insisted that PCR was too sensitive to be a useful diagnostic test, since it can tell whether a given genetic sequence is present but says nothing whatsoever about viral load ... the key factor in whether a given individual is infectious. A functioning academy would have asked why these tests, with their known flaws, were being used, and whether the 'case' numbers reported on the basis of such tests were meaningful. A functioning academia would have asked why 'case' had suddenly been redefined to mean 'a positive PCR test', rather than its long-standing meaning of 'a symptomatic patient'. For that matter, a functioning academia would have earlier asked why 'pandemic' had been redefined, conveniently, just before the pandemic was announced ... but then, a functioning academia would not have allowed itself to becoming accustomed to the regular redefinition of words in the first place.
Serbia has broken a negative record these days. This time, it is not by the number of new cases, nor by the price of energy, but by the number of newly HIV infected people.
Last week, there were more positive results on the HIV test than the previous ones, and last month was a record when it comes to the number of newly infected HIV people.
"We have noticed that the number has increased significantly in the last few months. This is alarming, but not unexpected, because a much smaller number of people were tested during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 and 2021. We noticed that the trend of a jump in the number of infected people lasts for several months. The corona itself has affected us in a way that causes us stress. "Many people have become more prone to alcohol and narcotics, so under the influence of these substances, they have entered into sexual relations," says Jelena Javtović from "Potent".
Srbija je ovih dana oborila jedan negativan rekord. Ovog puta nije ni po broju novih kovid slučajeva, ni po ceni energenata, nego po broju HIV novozaraženih osoba.www.danas.rs
The committee were probably taking a percentage of deliveries to try to resell on the black market, but failed.
Update: solutions are being introduced for these problems to quell complaints. Now being posted physically and online are lists (with graphic images) of items to expect in each ration delivery, and delivery date windows. This way, everyone knows what they'll get and when. Before, the timing and contents of ration deliveries was a mystery. The rations are also given "package" names, such as fresh food package, dry food package, instant food package, cleaning package, flavorings package, etc. I have seen examples online. Also, senior citizens only are getting an additional ration sometimes.I also hear that distribution of rations, even at the neighborhood committee level, is not equitable, meaning that they are not adjusting distributions for the number of people that live in each unit.
Mr Cade explained the multiple sightings weren't unusual for this time of year.
"The red-bellied black snakes may have misread RAT testing," he told 9news.com.au.
