    Ireland reports record high of COVID-19 deaths in single day

    A total of 77 COVID-19-related deaths were reported in Ireland on Monday, the highest figure ever recorded in a single day since the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, according to the statistics released by the Irish Department of Health.

    To date, there are altogether 687 COVID-19-related deaths in Ireland, said the department in a statement on Monday night, adding that another 401 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported in the country on the same day, bringing the total number to 15,652.

    Irish Health Minister Simon Harris said in a twitter video message on Sunday night that he fears that complacency could be setting in regarding the battle against COVID-19.

    He warned that such complacency would be "disastrous" and could potentially be "fatal".

    His warning came after some of the European countries have recently decided to ease their lockdown measures.

    In another development, the Irish Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection issued a statement on Monday, saying that to date 584,000 people have been paid under the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment, a relief plan announced by the Irish government on March 16 to pay all those who have lost their jobs in the country due to the pandemic on a weekly basis of 350 euros (about 380 U.S. dollars) for an initial period of 12 weeks.

    More PPE supplies from China expected to arrive soon in Ireland

    The second batch of personal protective equipment (PPE) ordered from China is expected to arrive in Ireland soon, the Irish national radio and television broadcaster RTE reported on Sunday, quoting an official.

    Paul Reid, head of the Health Service Executive (HSE), a state agency responsible for public health service in Ireland, was quoted as saying at an HSE weekly briefing that the delivery of the second batch of PPE ordered by the Irish government from China had commenced on Saturday.

    He said that HSE has asked Chinese suppliers to add more items into the second batch of PPE ordered by Ireland as part of its efforts to accelerate the supply of such equipment which is badly needed by the country to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The second batch of the goods ordered was originally worth 67 million euros (about 73 million U.S. dollars), but now is worth 130 million euros as more items have been added into it, said Reid.

    The Irish government has ordered a total of 208 million euros worth of PPE from China, according to an earlier HSE announcement.

    The first batch of PPE ordered from China, which is worth 31 million euros, has been fully distributed across the country, Reid added.

    PPE ordered by Ireland from China include ventilators, emergency beds, surgical masks, gloves, gowns and eye shields, according to HSE. (1 euro = 1.087 U.S. dollars)

    British PM’s pregnant fiancée speaks of “very dark times” while he was in hospital

    Carrie Symonds, the pregnant fiancée of Boris Johnson, has praised the medical staff, who helped the British Prime Minister come through COVID-19, adding that there were “very dark” times last week.

    “I cannot thank our magnificent NHS enough.

    “The staff at St Thomas’ Hospital have been incredible.

    “I will never, ever be able to repay you and I will never stop thanking you,’’ she said on Twitter.

    “There were times last week that were very dark indeed.

    “My heart goes out to all those in similar situations, worried sick about their loved ones.’’

    Johnson spent three nights in intensive care during his hospital stay.

    Downing Street announced on Sunday he had been discharged and would continue his recovery at his official country residence.

    The news came shortly before the governments of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales said that the number of coronavirus-related deaths in Britain had surpassed 10,000.

    “In that past seven days, I have of course seen the pressure that the NHS is under,’’ Johnson said in a video message posted to his Twitter account shortly after he left St. Thomas’ Hospital in central London.

    “I have seen the personal courage, not just of the doctors and nurses, but of everyone – the cleaners, the cooks, the health care workers of every description,’’ he said.

    “The NHS is the beating heart of this country, it is unconquerable, it is powered by love.’’

    The 55-year-old conservative politician was hospitalised a week ago running a high fever and spent three days in the intensive care unit.

    In a statement late on Saturday, Johnson said of the health workers who took care of him: “I owe them my life’’.

    Foreign Minister, Dominic Raab, is deputising for Johnson, but there are no clearly defined rules for situations in which a British head of government is not able to fulfil his or her duties.

    Britain has recorded nearly 79,000 cases of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the coronavirus.

    Some 10,000 have died as the country’s National Health Service struggles to treat the large influx of patients.

    England playing different formats on consecutive days ‘feasible’ – Giles

    England could field separate test and limited-overs teams to play matches on consecutive days as part of a compressed home season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, says the ECB’s director of cricket Ashley Giles.

     England have suspended professional cricket until at least May 28 due to the outbreak and uncertainty also looms over their home series against West Indies, Pakistan, Australia and Ireland.

    Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has said England could field two different teams on the same day at separate venues to maximise the amount of cricket in a truncated summer.

    “Technically it’s feasible,” former spinner Giles told British media. “You could put two different groups together. We haven’t really looked at that, like that, yet.”

    However, Giles thought it more likely that matches could take place on consecutive days.

    “We’ve certainly looked at playing two formats around the same time,” he added.

    “You could have a test match running and play a T20 or an ODI the day before or the day after a test match.

    “But it’s also working with the broadcasters on what’s best and what they want. That’s another important partnership for us.

    “They will be suffering at the moment and we are very much all in this together.”

    Giles hoped at least some cricket would be played this summer though he conceded hosting West Indies for a three-test series in June was looking “less and less likely”.

    “The deadline of 28 May still stands but … it’s looking less and less likely that we’re going to be out there in June,” he said.

    COVID-19: EU executive proposes closing external borders until May 15

    The European Union’s executive wants to stop all non-essential foreign travel into the bloc until May 15, extending current restrictions imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    “While we can see encouraging first results, prolonging the travel restriction is necessary to continue reducing the risks of the disease spreading further,” European Commission Vice President Margaritis Schinas said in a statement on Wednesday.

    On March 17, all EU member states except Ireland, Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland, decided to impose the measure for an initial 30 days. It is up to individual capitals to decide on the proposed extension.

    Exemptions apply to long-term EU residents, family members of EU nationals, diplomats and some health care workers, among others.

    Any decision to extend the restrictions again beyond May 15 would have to be assessed “based on the evolution of the epidemiological situation,” the commission said.
