Tony Canavan, CEO of the Saolta Group which has responsibility for the hospitals in the West and North West says they have seen a very significant increase in the number of patients hospitalised with COVID-19 in Mayo University Hospital.

In one week from December 29th to January 4th the number of patients in Mayo University Hospital increased from 19 to over 50.  

“It is inevitable that the higher level of COVID-19 infections in the community, the greater the pressure on the health services. The team at Mayo University Hospital are doing all they can to ensure that they can continue to treat both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients safely and quickly but they need the community in Mayo to play their part also and stick to the public health advice and stay home where possible to reduce the levels of COVID-19 in the community.”
