The doctors who took care of him discovered that the mushrooms he had injected were now growing in his blood. This is an extraordinary case that American doctors had to face.

There are currently 410 Covid-19 patients in hospital in Northern Ireland, with 33 in intensive care units. There are currently 16 ICU beds available in the health service.

The new figures came after the chief medical officer insisted another period of intensified coronavirus restrictions in the new year is not inevitable.

Covid deaths rise again in England to 2,466 in second week of November

  Covid deaths rise again in England to 2,466 in second week of November The weekly report from the Office for National Statistics showed that the numbers of people dying of any cause is higher than average in all regions of England and Wales, driven up by Covid fatalities.Office for National Statistics data published today shows there were 1,833 excess deaths in the week that ended November 13, with a total of 11,495 people dying.

Nine more people diagnosed with Covid - 19 have died, bringing the total number of coronavirus-related deaths in the State to 1,678, the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) said it had been informed on Saturday evening. Notification of 24 new confirmed coronavirus cases was received by

The total number of coronavirus-related deaths in Northern Ireland is now 92, while across the UK 8,931 people have died, a rise of 953 since Thursday. The median age of those who have died after being diagnosed with Covid - 19 in Northern Ireland is 81. As the lockdown nears the end of its third

Dr Michael McBride said while a “payback” in infection rates is expected in January following the relaxation of rules over Christmas, the extent of the rise in cases depends on public behaviour.

He said the Executive will issue guidance next week on how households can minimise infection risks when more mixing is permitted between December 23 and 27.

Northern Ireland has just entered another two-week circuit-break lockdown in a bid to drive down transmission rates ahead of Christmas.

Asked if another clampdown in January is inevitable, Dr McBride said: “It depends on all of us. There will be a payback for the relaxations over Christmas. But I think it’s the right thing to do. It’s important for our mental health and for our well-being, but we will see increased transmission.

Will US COVID-19 mortality catch up to surging cases?

  Will US COVID-19 mortality catch up to surging cases? Experts explained that the number of excess deaths will likely rise again this winter, but will probably not reach levels seen this spring as older people take greater care to stay safe and outbreaks trend rural.In fact, new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that excess fatalities in the US have fallen substantially since the first peak of the pandemic in the spring.

The Department of Health has confirmed the deaths of ten more people diagnosed with Covid - 19 , and a further 255 new cases. It brings the total number of deaths in Ireland to 19. It shows there are 66 clusters of the infection, including nine clusters in nursing homes, eight clusters in hospitals and two

“When we come together, the virus is there and the virus will spread. So we really need to be careful, what we need to do is get the virus down as low before we go into the Christmas period as possible and be really careful over Christmas.”

Dr McBride acknowledged the difficulties the retail and hospitality sectors are facing as they lose out on two weeks of trade at the busiest time of the year.

“I’m sorry that we are in this situation,” he said.

“I know there’ll be many views about the needs for, or not for, this restriction.

“But it is making a difference, it is making an impact. I just want to thank everyone, now the Executive has made its decision, for all of their efforts.”

The chief medical officer said there is evidence the recent period of tightened restrictions is starting to bring down hospital admission numbers.

“Let’s make this two weeks work,” he added.

“This is a really important opportunity for us to get the virus levels down as low as possible before Christmas.

England and Wales Covid-19 deaths rise for first time since April

  England and Wales Covid-19 deaths rise for first time since April A report by the Office for National Statistics today revealed that a total 725 people died with Covid-19 in September, up from 576 in August but significantly lower than the 31,000 people in April.Office for National Statistics data published today show 725 people died with Covid-19 - although not necessarily because of it. In comparison, just 576 fatalities were recorded in August. This was the first time the number had increased since the first wave of disease slammed into the UK in April, when deaths in England and Wales soared from 1,700 to 31,000 in a month.

Deaths are where COVID - 19 was mentioned on the death certificate. Source: ONS, NRS and NISRA – England, Wales and Northern Ireland updated Overall death toll could be more than 70,000. When looking at the overall death toll from coronavirus, official figures count deaths in three different ways.

“It’s working, what we’re doing is working, your commitment, we’re seeing reduction in the number of cases, we’re seeing a beginning of a fall in numbers of patients in the hospital.

“That’s the best way to protect each other, our families and protect our health service and, more importantly, save lives. So let’s just get this done.”

On the roll-out of a vaccine, he sought to downplay expectations that it will remove the need for restrictions in the short-term.

“We have some difficult months ahead of us,” he said.

“The vaccine will not see us through this winter but I am confident by late spring it will be doing a lot of the heavy lifting and hopefully talk of wider and further restrictions will increasingly become a thing of the past.”
