Almost half of the new cases of Covid-19 reported on Saturday were in people under 35.

Six deaths were recorded, while there were 23 new cases.

10 of these or 43% were in people younger than 35.

The Chief Medical Officer has expressed concern that lifting of restrictions has led to people gathering in large groups.

Dr Tony Holohan said yesterday: “High levels of compliance to public health advice to date has enabled further reopening of economic and social life.

“However, of the 23 cases reported [on Saturday], 10 cases (43%) are in younger adults aged under 35 years. A further 8 cases (35%) are in those aged between 35-54.

“This is now a real concern and a worrying trend at a time when many people are reconnecting with friends and loved ones and may be gathering in larger groups.

“In recent days, for example, some cases have had large numbers of close contacts that have required testing and self-isolation for 14 days.

More nonsense. The sooner everyone gets exposed the better.

Sham Fox has contracted the Covid-19 virus and is in a bad way.

If your mother has passed away Sir, then we all extend our condolences and recognize the grief you feel. Draw strength from the fact that she lived through tough times and gave life to whatever number of people she and her husband brought into this world. May she now enjoy an eternity with those that gave her life, extending all the way back through time and may she rest.
