'Too many people with Covid symptoms aren't self-isolating' - Tony Holohan warns

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has said too many people with Covid-19 symptoms or who are waiting on a test are not self isolating.

People were advised to clean their room every day with disinfectant and not to have visitors over, to not attend work, school or public areas.“Even if you feel well, you still need to isolate for 10 days,” he said. “Self isolation means staying indoors completely and avoiding contact with other people, including those you live with.

Micheál Martin: No evidence for safe reopening of wet pubs Face masks now advised in work and busy outdoor areas Face masks are now recommended 'on busy streets' and public asked to use 'common sense'

“Avoid contact with anyone, especially older people…”“I know it will be challenging for you to self-isolate for 10 days, but these actions will help to prevent the spread of Covid-19.”This comes as 939 new cases of Covid-19 have emerged and three more people have died - but Dublin has recorded the ninth lowest two-week incidence rate nationally showing early Level 3 results may be having an effect.

As of 2pm today 341 Covid-19 patients have been hospitalised - 38 of these are in ICU and 16 additional hospitalisations have taken place in the last 24 hours.Of the cases notified today: 262 are in Dublin, 96 are in Cork, 61 are in Meath, 53 are in Galway, 51 are in Donegal and the remaining 413 cases are across all remaining counties.

Today saw Cavan record the highest two-week incidence rate for the virus - with 967.5 cases per 100,000 cases, compared to an average of 309.0 per 100,000 for the country as a whole.Co Meath recorded the second highest incidence rate with 667.0 per 100,000. Sligo recorded the third highest with 442.5.

However there seemed to be some positive signs for Dublin, placed in Level 3 ahead of the rest of the country last month.The capital recorded the ninth lowest incidence rate in the country, with 258.1 cases per 100,000 for the past two weeks.However Donegal, which was also placed into level 3 early, recorded the eighth highest two-week incidence rate despite the measures, with 329.8 cases per 100,000.

Santa Claus given clearance to enter Irish airspace

Santa Claus has been deemed an essential worker and will not be subject to Covid-19 travel restrictions when he arrives in Ireland next month.

He has no face mask This guy needs an enema, there will be a queue to administer it. gohometony This shite story was posted yesterday as well And too many others are being forced to isolate in lock down for no reason? We need covid infection camps 'Judgement in Case of Impeachment Shall not Extend Further than Removal from Office upon Impeachment for and Conviction of, The Senate Appellate Power to Amend The Law to Enforce The Judgement!'

He's right, and until those idiots start to cop on then this shit is just going to drag on . Like members of the gardai and school teachers What taxes is he going to pay next year? What has Ireland in common with Venezuela Eritrea Honduras Chile Argentina Peru Answers on a postcard 14 day isolating is too long, people won't take the financial hit. Bring isolation down to 7 days and do two tests and you'll see a decease. It's been tested in Sweden and works. Apologies for mentioning the S word.

Why the fuck isnt this man in jail come on, he hid important information from woman about there smear test and now hes hiding information again about this covid 19. Jail him for his crimes Are there many members down the lodge self-isolating? It's dangerous to be right when the government is wrong -Voltaire

How many ppl exactly who have been tested have had ANY symptoms? And how many who ah e has symptoms have ended up in hospital or ICU? How many have tested positive while in hospital contracting a virus there? The ‘cases’ still being rolled out each day with no context. Tony Tony Tony 🍵🍊💅❓oh Tony. The people using this weeks narrative 'Where has the flu gone' are absolutely embarrassing!! 😂😂😂😂🤤🤤🤡🤡

No one wants to spend 14 days in their room . Let it spread and let only the strong survive . Planet has too many people on it The system of fines should apply to those who break the self isolating and restricting movements rule. There arectoo many people moving about when they should stay indoors. Ah good old Tony Baloney & his NPHET cronies. Keep the fear level up 👍

Do you mean with flu/cold symptoms as every year this time of the year? Maybe Tony, you should take the 350 pup payment, that you forced everyone else on!!! That would be solidarity otherwise stfu with this ‘all in it together’. When we clearly aren’t nphet, politicians and public sector all on full pay while the rest of us muggins are on the pup 🖕

Whos going to pay the mortgage and bills if we dont work ? What going on with this medicine man and collar turned up does he believe he in rock star. Having no symptoms is the biggest symptom of Covid! Part of a Chief Medical Officers remit is to spread some positivity. However in Tony's case it has been just one negative statement one after another which is causing unnecessary fear and anxiety with a certain group of people. Crying wolf springs to mind

Two words here: Sick pay Will never be achieved when schools are open and kids spreading it.. how can they isolate when they don’t even know they’ve been with a close contact/ someone who is infected? Need to stop daily cases being reported and start focusing on hospital admissions and icu numbers Yet no one is dying. Can we now have numbers on how many ppl have been denied treatment and diagnosis in Irish hospitals since March 2020 please?

And that is where the fines should be not for someone going 7k from home 🚶‍♀️ 🏃🏻‍♀️ cycling 🚴‍♀️ also people not turning up for tests Teflon Tony taking away the promise christmas aka carrot on a stick...under the guise of 'people aren't self-isolating, next week no Christmas 'people hugged on street' following week 'one man on flight from timbuktu spread covid to 25 others '....when is this gibberish ending

'Too many people with Covid symptoms aren't self isolating', proceeds to lean back putting his feet up on tge desk while taking a sip from his golden chalice. Fk off Tony Too many people need to get a grip & step up and follow the guidelines. Too many ppl with God complexes and delusions of grandeur destroying our lives.

I'm homeworking/ isolating/ cancelling trips since March. l feel like I'm the only one doing it & my life is shit. stay TF at home w4nkers. I wish Big Brother Tony would self isolate and that we never see him again Maybe we should fine those who fail or refuse to self isolate. They are Tony honestly Or maybe the headline should read: 'Too many asymptomatic people included in the covid statistics'?
