The Department of Health has confirmed that 374 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.

The figures show that as of midnight on Saturday, there were 99 people being treated in hospital for the virus.

Of these patients, 35 are in ICU.

The Department warned that daily case numbers may change due to future data validation following the HSE cyber attack.

The 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 of the population now stands at 127.

The five-day moving average is now 438, while the seven-day average is 415.

The CEO of the HSE Paul Reid said today that the vaccination programme in Ireland "is now making great headway".

He said there were more than one million doses administered in May and 2.7 million in total to date.

He added that 50% of the adult population had one dose, while "close to 20%" have had two doses.

It comes after the Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said he was "absolutely shocked" by the scenes in Dublin city on Saturday night, describing them as a "major open-air party".

He added that it was not what the country needs given the progress that has been made in fighting the virus.
