We must act now. It is estimated that up to 40% of the Irish population gather in pubs and restaurants to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. This could lead to the infection of up to one quarter of the population of our island in one single day. 

The Irish government have predicted that 25% - 75% of the population will be infected by the virus. If we manage this crisis well and only 25% of our population is infected, we may need up to 60,000 I.C.U. beds to care for the small percentage of those infected cases who will need life support. There are currently less than 300 I.C.U. beds in Ireland.

We must act NOW to stop the spread.

If public houses do not close their doors on St. Patrick's Day (and this is a choice they may be forced to make themselves if the government do not act) there will be thousands suffering unnecessarily. Our healthcare system will experience the devasatating impact of our refusual to act on this issue. The elderly and the sick will be sacrificed by our stupidity. Many people will be forced to make a choice about who will live and who will die and hundreds, maybe thousands of loved ones will be lost.

This is the reality of what we face.

The pubs must close their doors.

Please sign and share before it is too late!
