People with early Covid symptoms urged to isolate

The current wave of Covid-19 cases is having a huge impact on hospitals and people seem less likely to be isolating when they have early symptoms, the Covid-19 lead with the Irish College of General Practitioners has said.

Dr Nuala O'Connor said that GPs are finding that by the time people contact them "they've already perhaps gone to work or gone out to a social event and it's two or three days later and they're quite symptomatic."

She said people should not go to work if they have any symptoms and should not send children to summer camps or parties if they have symptoms or colds.

"We're again seeing lots of Covid after social events such as weddings and funerals ... It's the early symptoms that you have when you're most infectious. And please do think about others who may be more vulnerable and stay at home," she said.

Speaking on RTÉ's Today with Claire Byrne, Dr O'Connor said there is "an awful lot of Covid in the community now, and we're seeing a big impact on that in our day-to-day work in general practice."

There has been another increase in the numbers with Covid-19 in hospital.

As of 8am, there were 885 people in hospital with the virus, an increase of 59 on the same time yesterday.

Of these, 32 people are in intensive care units with Covid-19.

Dr O'Connor said that Covid numbers are having a huge impact on hospitals with a large number of beds being taken up by Covid patients.

"Even if they aren't particularly sick, there's a lot of infection prevention and control measures that need to be in place, and it slows up everything and unfortunately, it tends to displace other care."

She said some people may be holding off for a new booster that may be more effective against the Omicron
