There are now over 200 people with Covid-19 in Irish hospitals and 30 people with the illness in intensive care, according to the HSE’s latest figures.
But of the 201 people with the virus in hospitals across the State, the most recent data shows that there are just two confirmed cases in Galway hospitals.
There is one confirmed case in University Hospital Galway and one person with the illness at Portiuncula, while there there are no cases in ICU at either hospital.
The latest HSE figures also show the lack of beds available at these hospitals – there are just seven general beds and two critical care beds available at UHG, and only six general beds at Portiuncula where there are three further suspected Covid-19 cases.
Cavan Hospital has the most confirmed Covid-19 cases in the Republic (22), followed by Beaumont, Tallaght, Cork and Letterkenny.
