LARUE COUNTY. LaRue County reported 7 new COVID-19 cases Monday, bringing the county's total number of positive cases to 1,016.

The median age of those who died is 83 years while the deceased ranged in age from 48 to 99.

The patient died Monday, marking the third such death this week after two deaths were reported on January 25.

Since we last reported, we have had 314 new cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 618 new cases in the Fraser Health region, 73 in the Island Health region, 234 in the Interior Health region, 104 in the Northern Health region and one new case of a person who resides outside of Canada.

There are 4,260 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, a slight decrease from reported numbers on Monday.

Fauci, the top infectious disease expert in the U.S. and President Joe Biden's chief medical advisor, said delaying second shots was not necessarily damaging, but the risk meant officials "prefer to keep it to the time that the clinical trials said". There is now a total of 189,851 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.

The Chief Medical Officer has confirmed that six additional cases linked to the South African variant of the virus have been identified in the Republic.

The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) has said 89 of the fatalities occurred in January. Indeed, public health doctors in the Midlands reported a total of 4,000 cases in the first 8 months of 2020 and another 4,000 cases in the first four weeks of 2021.

Another 6,450 people are also under active public health monitoring as a result of exposure to a known case of COVID-19.

"The downturn in incidence has been achieved through the determination of people across the country to stay at home, to work from home and to avoid meeting and socialising with others".

Within today's new cases, half are in people under 45 years of age.

Of today's cases, 53 are in Galway, where the the 14 day incidence rate now stands at 616.1 cases per 100,000 people. That is up from the 346 new cases detected yesterday, but down from the average 513 cases detected on a daily basis so far in 2021, up until yesterday. That includes 313 people hospitalized with COVID-19, 71 of whom are in intensive care.
