11. The luck of the Irish has graced this country with a meager mortality rate.
Ireland seems to have been very lucky when it comes to its low mortality rate of 6.139. They always speak about the luck of the Irish. This country currently has one of the strictest restrictions concerning the pandemic in place. Ireland has been in its highest level lockdown for three months to curb the pandemic’s effect on their population. Is it working? Their daily infections are down, and minimal deaths are happening. They’re just waiting on their vaccine program to pick up momentum before reopening the economy. So, maybe their harsh restrictions are doing the trick.
COVID-19 was one of the lowest causes of deaths in the last third of 2020 in Ireland. There were only 191 Coronavirus deaths between June and September, and there were a total of 7111 deaths during that period. What were the greater causes of deaths in the country? Ranking in top position was cancer which accounted for 2356 of the deaths in Ireland. Next up were diseases of the circulatory system and then dementia. Accidents in Ireland led to 217 deaths, and just below that was Alzheimer’s. The country is set to start making its way out of lockdown over the next few month’s so let’s see if their plan worked!
