Waterloo region adds 14 COVID-19 cases, public health reports

The Government is expected to decide at the end of the week whether additional restrictions are required across four more counties after a spike in Covid-19 cases on Sunday night, according to the Irish Times.

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been informed that five people with COVID-19 have died.

One of the women was in her 40's, the other in her 70's. Female residents account for 3,406 (57%) of the county's cases.

Dublin and Donegal are now subject to Level 3 restrictions under the Government's Covid-19 five-tier response plan, with the rest of the country at Level 2.

Officials have acknowledged in the past that the figure is a significant undercount, because it includes only those who died after a positive test result, nearly always at a hospital. The patients were a male and two females with ages ranging in their 70s and 80s (for two).

In the USA, the number of people who have had confirmed cases of the virus has topped 7 million, and more than 204,000 have reportedly died as a result, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

There are four ongoing confirmed cases in Woodstock and two in St. Thomas. There are 1,139 people who are presumed recovered from the virus. During the week of September 21 to 27, six of the 13 cases confirmed by public health were part of the school's community. A total of 696 people have recovered.

A dozen new cases are being reported from the University of Montana, bringing the cumulative total to 112.

There have been 41 COVID-19-related deaths in the county. The county passed the 6,000 case mark on Sunday. There are have been 23 hospitalizations since the pandemic started.

There are now 108 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Irish hospitals, the highest amount of coronavirus hospitalizations since the beginning of June.

"I have no doubt the people of Dublin have heard this loud and clear, and in the vast majority of cases people are doing what they are supposed to do, limiting their interactions".

Some parts of the country like Mexico City have begun conducting their own recalculations, finding "excess deaths" likely caused by coronavirus were at least double official figures.
