A further 407 COVID cases have been announced this afternoon.

Last night, there were 93 coronavirus patients in Irish hospitals – down six on this day last week.

There were 34 in ICU, down seven on last week.

The HSE cyberattack continues to impact on the reporting of the figures and the Department of Health said daily case numbers may change due to future data review, validation and update.

The Five-Day Moving Average has fallen below 400 to 387.

Professor Philip Nolan during a briefing at the Department of Health in Dublin. Another five deaths and 611 cases of Covid-19 have been detected, Ireland's National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) said.

The head of the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) COVID modelling group Professor Philip Nolan said the national outlook is generally stable.

He welcomed the fall in the five-day figure but warned that there has been a significant increase in infections among people aged between 19 and 24-years-old in the past fortnight.

He added the R number is now estimated to be between 0.9 and 1.05.

The 14-day rate of the virus in Ireland now stands at 122 cases per 100,000 people.

81% of the 5811 cases detected in Ireland over the past two weeks were under the age of 45.

Limerick has the highest 14-day in Ireland at 376 cases per 100,000.

That is followed by Donegal on 201, Offaly on 172 and Dublin on 155.
