'Circuit breaker' lockdown is a big increase in NI Kovid cases

Locking down the “circuit breaker” is essential to prevent Kovid-19 in Northern Ireland, a senior medical adviser has warned if the rise in cases of the Northern Corona virus continues.

Dr. of the North Public Health Agency. Jerry Waldron made his comments Sunday. The North Department of Health reported 462 confirmed cases of Kovid-19. The total number of cases rose to 14,074.

One more death was reported, bringing the death toll to 584. On Saturday the department reported 726 new confirmed cases in the daily bulletin, and an additional Kovid-19 death. That means there were 1,188 new cases in the North on Saturday and Sunday.

Although these daily figures are below 934 positive tests reported on Friday, it is of great concern to senior doctors and politicians.

North Indian Finance Minister Connor Murphy said the Northern executive should look into a strict “circuit breaker” lockdown, saying it would be better if it happened on an island basis.

In the last seven days, 3,289 people have been confirmed infected with the virus. Of these, 733 were in the Belfast Council area, 731 in the Derry and Strabain area, 521 in Nure, Morn and Downen, and 266 in Mid-Ulster.

Although the cascade is high, the number of patients in the hospital is relatively low, yet health experts point to the delay between the increase in cases and hospital admissions.
