In the first four weeks of September, there were 4,717 cases of people dying in Ireland from the coronavirus, with a record number of people reporting they had been infected in the first few days of the outbreak.
There were 466 deaths in that period.
The latest figures for September also show that the country is now the country with the highest number of coronaviruses recorded in the world.
The virus has hit hospitals hardest.
In the country, the number of deaths rose by 5.3% from a year earlier.
In a bid to tackle the problem, Ireland is launching an online portal called COVID-19 Trusted Health.
The website will enable people to search for a doctor and register their preferences for their preferred doctors.
The portal will also provide information about the best options for getting an appointment, and will provide information on the cost of treatment.
In an interview with The Irish News, Dr. Daniel O’Connell, the head of COVID epidemiology at the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland (RCSI), said: “The first thing that we want to do is make sure that we’re not going to get overwhelmed, but also to make sure we’re making the most of the limited time we have.”
Dr. O’Connor said that COVID patients in the country had been offered to hospital emergency departments more than 50 times in the past week, and that the numbers were continuing to rise.
He said that although the coronivirus had affected patients at a much lower level than in the US, he was still concerned about the increase in cases in Ireland.
The number of patients treated in hospital emergency rooms has increased by more than 70% in the last month.
The new COVID website will help patients identify the doctors they want to see.
It will also give patients access to more information, including more detailed information on how they can get treatment and information about how the disease affects their health.
Dr. John Murphy, who is the chief medical officer at the RCSI, said that there had been an increase in the number patients coming to the emergency department after having been treated in the NHS.
He told The Irish Independent: “There are a lot of patients in our hospitals and there are a number of different kinds of patients that are being treated at different points of time and I think there is a real opportunity for them to come in to see a doctor.”
The RCSI is the country’s largest healthcare provider, with about 25,000 staff working in hospitals across the country.
He explained that COVS and its partners at the hospital trust system, the Irish College of Emergency Medicine (ICEM), would work closely with the new portal to ensure that patients with a particular problem were able to access the best treatment.
He added that the portal would provide information to the patients on how to find the doctors that they would like to see, and what they would have to pay for treatment.
“We want to make this as simple as possible for people,” Dr. Murphy said.
“That way they can do the right thing.”
The website, which will open for use on Thursday, will be free for people to sign up for and will not cost a penny.
It is expected that COV-19 will be on the public radar for the next two weeks, and Dr. Ciaran Coyle, chief executive of the Irish Medical Association (IMA), said that it was a good start for the country to tackle a problem that is a challenge for healthcare professionals.
He stated that the new website was an important step to increase awareness and access to specialist healthcare, and noted that the current system is not very efficient.
“People are very sceptical of the NHS in this country and this is an opportunity for us to bring some much needed attention to this issue,” Dr Coyle said.
He also said that the website would provide patients with the most detailed information about their treatment.
Dr Coyne said that patients had a lot to gain from the site, but added that there would be a cost involved.
“There is going to be a bit of an increase, but that is the nature of COV,” he said.
In addition to the new online portal, the country will also be launching a national helpline in the coming days.
The helplines will be manned by volunteers, and the phone number for the hotline is 1800 667 651.
The Irish government has pledged that in the next 24 hours, it will offer free flu vaccinations to people who have not yet had a dose of the vaccine.
