I've come to realise I should be sticking to facts during these untrusting uncertain times (well as much 'facts' as we can actually get)                                                       I wouldn't want to be classed as scaremongering lol :-)

Anyway these are the daily information for Northern Ireland. I know NI isn't that big and our numbers aren't as high as others. But I thought it could provide a picture. Maybe a pattern? Maybe help somehow...... If it doesn't I will stop after a period..

▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎

Northern Ireland - Tues 21/12/21

2069 new cases (41 tests from hospital laboratories + 2055 from community)                                      Ages of cases- 0-19 +541;  20-39 +995;  40-59 +468;  60-79 + 77;  80+ - 13;  Uknown- +2  

Hospital occupancy- currently 268 ICU occupancy - 34   (we have 15 ICU beds available)                        care home outbreak - +2  (43 confirmed)

* Thoughts and prays with everyone 🙏 *

3 new deaths - male +1, female +2 Ages; 40-50 +1;  60-70 +2              setting - Hospital +3

Vaccination                                         1st dose - +556 (now 1,392,640)     2nd does- +610 (now 1,392,640)   booster - +14, 758 (now 681,297)


Like I said I am hoping this will shed some light and hopefully help. I came to this forum for information and help. So others might too...

It's those care home cases that concern me (43). I am assuming they are all double vaxxed at the least.
My retirement community of elderly folks - most with underlying health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, early dementia, lung issues with many on 02- there are 129 of us here.
Our director will not close the wide open dining room unless if/when there are 10 active cases. By that time, it will be too late, considering how fast omicron races through.
Needless to say, I am having all my meals delivered to my apartment starting a day ago and I am consistently double masked (N-95 w/cloth over it) whenever I leave my apartment. I am the ONLY one that wears a mask amongst us residents...they all act like this is some magical place where the virus doesn't get in.
Do I get rolled eyes and chuckles from my "friends"?  Yes. But even if I do get sick, I am hoping my viral load will not be too great that it will be a problem. P.S. we are all triple vaxxed here with Moderna but you know that is not a guarentee, plus they let in so many different people all day long and folks go out to doctor appointments and to visit family and travel.

Northern Ireland - Wed 22/12/21

New cases - 3231 (!) 93 from hospital laboratories and 3138 from community........ Ages of Positive cases; 0-19  +671;  20-39  +1731; 40-59  +681; 60-79  +128; over 80  +19; unknown  +1

Hospital occupancy -7 (currently 261) / ICU occupancy is unchanged (currently 34) / We have 10 ICU beds available..

*Thoughts and prays with everyone 🙏 

New deaths - +3 (male +2; female +1) / Ages 40-59  +2 / 60-79  +2 (+1 death added from yesterday)

Vaccination - 1st dose  +1113 (now 1,393,753) / 2nd dose  +1123 (now 1,292,111) / booster  +29,016 (now 710,313)


* I realise this can never be a true account of what is actually going on. We have to take into consideration excess deaths, people unwilling to test for covid, lack of track and trace, 'the 28 day' covid death rule and of course long covid has been completely ignored.. But it's the best we've got (or I've got lol) at this time for NI...

Hey Tabitha :-)

We had a massive problem before with care homes unfortunately. We were just unprepared and the hospitals sent people back to care homes to finish treatment there, to save beds. Unfortunately due to this covid outbreaks happened most in care homes.... At least now we know what happened and hopefully will learn from our mistakes...

Like you said now most people in care homes have booster or at least are double vaccinated. Which I'm sure will help...

You're very wise to take precautions Tabitha. There has been an incident here where a double vaxxed care home worker was assumed to be Covid free (had no symptoms, wasn't asked to do a lateral flow test because double jabbed), so went into work and it turned out they did have Covid and gave it to 15 elderly residents, all vaxxed, many who were then hospitalised and some whom later died. This was about a month ago. Shocking if you ask me.

Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts.

Restrictions starting from the 26th December here in Ni.

Health Minister Robin Swann said 'the omicron surge is deeply concerning for us in the Health service'. He hinted that limited funding prevented them imposing tougher restrictions.

Wow those figures have climbed sharply. We've just identified our first case of Omicron in the community here - in a nightclub DJ, so watch this space! We're about the same size and population as Ireland.

Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts.

* The positive cases are highest in 20 -39 age group. We also had a death in that age bracket yesterday which I thought would have been highlighted more here especially as it was Christmas... Unfortunately the care home outbreaks are rising again. Like Scotland and Ireland our hospital occupancy is rising quite quickly too.

And still here in my retirement community, visitors come and go, some without masks (as our director said "it's optional") We even had a bus from here go to the local Walmart this morning with residents going shopping - most without masks or if they bothered, flimsy cloth ones. I hope we are luckier than other places, as I sit here in my apartment, whilst most of the residents are eating in the dining room all together.....yikes!

Yep, Tabitha, same here.  I went out a couple times before Christmas and saw that only about 40% of people were wearing masks, as you said, mostly cloth ones.  Before November, our county, Allegheny, of which Pittsburgh is the seat, tallied an average of less than 300 cases of Covid a day.  Then a few weeks into November, you began to see totals of 500-700 cases/day, which number held for about a month, then presumably as Omicron made its way here, we have been just under 2000 cases a day.  I went out before Christmas and then again before New Years, and was gloved and N-95ed.  Now, I do not intend to go out except to the corner store to get milk/bananas until cases fall substantially again.

Tabitha - do you have a HEPA air purifier in your unit?  I think I remember you mentioning it, but it came to mind again...

Unfortunately the governments are adamant not to put restrictions into place and one of the places that will feel it the most is our care homes. In their bid to keep schools open at all costs, they have chosen to ignore this fact or even past experiences. Our care homes took a blow last time and I had really hoped we won't make the same mistakes over..

Yes, I have two air purifiers with HEPA filters in my teeny tiny studio apartment, plus I crack the window all day long, plus I put a door guard on my door (near the floor) the main door that goes into the hallway that air can get under. It's not perfect, but I do my best.

This is why I don't want to get this (see tweet below) , on top of it all, I am overweight (working on it) and 64....have a "friend" who is in her 70s, diabetic, extremely obese- tell me today that "she wasn't afraid to get it" and "you don't see her acting all afraid" implying that me with my mask and eating in my room that I am "afraid" and shouldn't be.

Bad headache, bad chills, whole body hurts, razor blades in throat, night sweats, bad drainage & some cough. You don't want this. https://t.co/IJEkY933uW" / Twitter

My family had COVID over the holidays.  Go sick on Thursday, tested Saturday morning negative, then went to my husbands Christmas party.  Still sick so tested again Tuesday, negative.  Wednesday, lost my sense of smell and taste and both hubby and son got sick.  Friday, Christmas Eve, positive.  And it was NOT mild.  The sort throat didn't last long for me but the congestion and coughing was the worst!  12 days I was sick.  I did nyquil, Mucinex D, vicks on chest, humidifier, 2 steam showers a day.  It was awful.  Testing in my opinion is also awful!  What a mess!

How are you feeling now? My cousin reported it took a long time to recover from. She still has a sort of heaviness feeling in her chest and it's been 2 months.

Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts.

Roni, hope you are well..

Before Christmas our head of Health basically pleaded with Ni on the radio. To say to ignore what the government said and to treat it like you have been told to go into lock down. I think not many people listened. We were told if we have any symptoms to isolate immediately. Again I don't think many listened... Now our advice is to do a lateral flow every day for 10 days....


Even before Covid my pet peeve was parents sending kids in when ill, wheather that was a cold or tummy. Not a care in the world spreading things around lol. And that was before Covid, now its just madness lol...

Unfortunately I don't think it's worth while carrying on this thread. Northern Ireland had announced a few things last week but the main one was no need for PCR test if you get a positive lateral flow at home.

My first thought was positive as now everyone has to test for 10 days if they are in contact with a positive case. So my thinking was outbreaks in schools and work places would be caught much quicker... Then my second thought was is this just another way to fix the numbers???

https://www.belfastlive.co.uk/news/health/covid-ni-over-2700-positive-22698742

2700 positive cases and 6 deaths


*This could/will get bad here very quickly and now we are blind.
