As of 2pm today, 899 people are now receiving treatment in hospital for the virus after 34 new admissions in the past 24 hours.

Of those patients, 160 are in ICU, down from 171 yesterday.

The 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 of the population now stands at 277.2.

It comes as a member of NPHET says there's concern some of the coronavirus figures are levelling off and are "stubbornly stuck".

Dr Mary Favier said the numbers are reducing slowly and will take time to lower significantly.

She added that "there's work to be done and we need to keep at it".
