There have been another 11 coronavirus-related deaths in the Republic.

64 new cases of the virus have also been confirmed today.

Latest figures from the Department of Health show the total number of cases has now reached 24,315, while 1,571 people have died here since the outbreak began.

The number of new cases of the virus has now remained below 100 for five days in a row.

Speaking about the latest figures, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: "To date, 87% of confirmed cases diagnosed with COVID-19 have recovered.

"This is very positive news but should not deflect from the impact this disease has had on individuals and families.

"In addition, it does not change the risk for any one individual who is diagnosed with the disease today, or in the future."
