Our hugely popular newsletter brings you the latest Irish and international developments.

Updated 15 October

IRELAND IS NOW deep in uncharted territory with Covid-19.

The vaccines have been rolled out, the restrictions are being slowly lifted – next, can we achieve a level of normality not seen since before the pandemic without overwhelming the country’s healthcare system?

All eyes are on case numbers and hospitalisations to gauge whether each step of reopening is appropriate. The Delta variant seems to be one step ahead of us at every turn.

Next comes a challenging winter when hospitals, already creaking under the weight of the fourth wave, face Covid, flu, immunity debt, and long waiting lists.

It can be difficult to stay on top of all the stats and figures, what restrictions have been introduced or relaxed, what information about vaccines or the virus is true or false, and generally how Ireland is faring in this battle against the coronavirus.

The Journal‘s hugely popular coronavirus newsletter has cut through the confusion and misinformation with clear, up-to-date facts, since it was launched in March 2020.
