A State of Emergency is Ireland's #1 non-fiction book. Thanks to everyone who has supported and believed in the project so far - but in particular our healthcare workers and everyone who shared their story with me. The book is dedicated to them.

48% of Covid cases in hospital coming from 6.5% of the population. 50% of ICU cases coming from 6.5% of the population.

We continue our focus on boosters. But also key that everyone gets a Dose 1 & 2. Now just 6.5% of adults not fully vaccinated. But 48% of Covid hospitalised cases aren't vaccinated & of those aged 19-49 in hospital, 79% aren't fully vaccinated. 50% of ICU not vaccinated at all.

If it isn’t surprising to see high transmission in the group that is unvaccinated - then why was contact tracing removed in schools?

On the rise of Covid in children: NPHET was again asked if schools are driving cases Response: It's likely due to kids being unvaccinated Ronan Glynn: “It isn’t surprising to see high transmission in a group which is unvaccinated, in a society that’s almost entirely vaccinated”

Varadkar however did warn about a concern that if things turn again in the run-up to Christmas - they'll be doing so from a 'very high base'. 'Government will carefully listen to NPHET's advice on the matter tomorrow before making any decisions.'

At Fine Gael parliamentary party meeting: Leo Varadkar says situation 'stable or improving slightly' and Ireland doing 'substantially better' than NPHET's optimistic models. Varadkar says he's 'sceptical' about imposing new 'restrictions on people’s freedoms' at this time.
