Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, said: “This is the largest number of cases in a single day since the beginning of May.
"We now have multiple clusters with secondary spread of disease and rising numbers of cases in many parts of the country. This is deeply concerning.
"NPHET will monitor this extremely closely over the coming days.
“This virus is still out there and has not gone away. COVID-19 seeks to capitalise on complacency and is just waiting for the opportunity to spread. I am asking everyone, especially those who are over 70 or medically vulnerable, to limit your contacts, keep your distance from other people and take extra care to heed public health advice."
As of this morning, there were 15 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Irish hospitals and eight cases in intensive care.
