Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Although the Covid-19 death rates/million population has been high in Ireland, at 305, around 10th. place in Europe, Ireland has had no Excess deaths due to Covid-19 to date. In other words the death rate from all causes is roughly the same as in previous years. This is in sharp contrast to England, which has currently got the highest excess death rates in Europe. This is a very good reason for restricting travel from England, in particular, and requiring a 14 day quarantine in almost all cases.
