There have been 25 more coronavirus-related deaths in Ireland.

There are also 343 new confirmed cases of the virus, bringing the total here to 21,176.

The latest figures show there have now been a total 1,286 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland.

The HSE says it's working to identify any contacts the patients may have had to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.

Data as of midnight on Thursday reveals:

  • 58% are women and 42% are men
  • The median age of confirmed cases is 49 years
  • 2,785 cases (13%) have been hospitalised
  • Of those hospitalised, 368 cases have been admitted to ICU
  • 5,973 cases are associated with healthcare workers

Dublin has the highest number of cases at 10,277 (50% of all cases) - followed by Kildare with 1,226 cases (6%) and then Cork with 1,156 cases (6%).

Of those for whom transmission status is known community transmission accounts for 63%, close contact is 34% and travel abroad accounts for 3%.

Meanwhile the number of people being treated with COVID-19 in Intensive Care Units has fallen below 100 for the first time in more than a month.

The latest figures show 99 people are in ICUs across the country with the disease.

The figure peaked at 160 last month.

It comes after the Government set out its plan for easing restrictions - starting with garden centres, repair shops and construction sites re-opening on May 18th.

The fifth stage is set to begin on August 10th.
