The countries all over the world are reacting to the rising COVID-19 numbers as the Omicron variant swiftly becomes the dominant strain.

This has been the case in Ireland where 52 percent of cases were determined to be from Omicron, where the government has now implemented a curfew. The Health Protection Surveillance Centre reported on Sunday: 5,124 confirmed Covid-19 cases, 436 of who are hospitalized, and 107 that are in ICU.

Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Ireland’s Department of Health said that  it has taken less than two weeks for Omicron to become the dominant strain of COVID-19 in Ireland, revealing just how transmissible this variant is.

No indoor events—including entertainment, cultural, community, and sporting events—will take place after the same time. Any events—including cinemas— taking place earlier are to be capped at 50 percent of venue occupancy or 1k attendees, whichever is lower. Not included are religious, educational, or normal workplace activities. The outdoor events will also be capped at 50 percent of venue capacity or 5k attendees, whichever is lower.
