The range of important indicators for the spread of the disease that begins to 'level off'

The latest data show that several key indicators related to the expansion of Kovid-19 has declined in the coming days.

The proportion of people who test positive has decreased, as has the number of close contacts with one person – a key indicator of disease transmission in the community.

The number of patients at the hospital on Sunday was 295, down from 312 on Saturday and 324 on Wednesday. There are currently 38 Kovid-19 patients in intensive care, a total of one on Saturday.

HSE Chief Executive Paul Reid on Sunday morning reduced the positivity rate of the eight-day test. It was 6.2 per cent on Saturday compared to the previous seven days.

Raid commented that the number of close contacts had dropped.

“Most close relationships are family. Still very early but good. We are all part of the solution. It can continue, ”he said on Twitter.

More than a thousand new cases have been reported in one day in 10 days this month, but in the last two days the number is below this level.

The community transmission rate has remained stable at 28% since the beginning of the month.

Indicators

While officials are wary of reading too much into the ODI figures, improvements in several indicators point to confirming the situation.

Tennis leo Varadkar told the RTE this week that the Level 3 restrictions imposed in early October were “beginning to take effect” in the early days.

“We see the number of cases leveling and the rate of positivity declining. However this is the first day, we have not yet seen what the outcome of the Level 5 steps will be and we will never know until November. ”
