The dashboard is available on the Departmental website.

It complements information currently in the public domain and, together with statistics on deaths published weekly by NISRA, helps provide a comprehensive picture of the effects of Covid-19 in Northern Ireland.

 

 

The new dashboard provides a range of key statistics on the number of Covid-19 patient admissions and discharges, outbreaks in care settings; bed occupancy, ICU occupancy and gender and age breakdowns.

The statistics are presented at a range of geographical levels including Local Government District and at Trust and hospital site.

The information will be refreshed daily and new content will be added as appropriate.

 

 

The statistics on deaths reported daily on the dashboard refer to individuals reported as having had a positive result for SARS-COV2 within 28 days of the death, whether or not Covid-19 was the cause of death.

These focus mainly, but not exclusively, on hospital-based deaths.

Health Minister Robin Swann told Newry Times, “It is vitally important to keep the public well informed.

“That includes the publication of statistics as well as the all-important advice on how we keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.

 

 

“My Department has also introduced and updated the Covid-19 NI app in recent weeks and further digital initiatives are planned,” he added.
