The Department of Health has confirmed that 416 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.

The figures show that as of midnight on Friday, there were 74 people being treated in hospital for the virus.

Of these patients, 29 are in ICU, compared to 28 yesterday.

The Department warned that daily case numbers may change due to future data validation.

The 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 of the population now stands at 124.

The five-day moving average is now 431, while the seven-day average is 415.

It comes as the Minister for Health said the public disorder on Dublin's streets last night was "thuggish" and "completely unacceptable".

It follows another night where large crowds of young people gathered to socialise in the South William Street, Stephen's Green and Temple Bar areas.

Glass bottles were among the missiles thrown at GardaĆ­ and one member of the force was hospitalised after sustaining an injury to his leg.

Six people were charged and released, two received the Adult Caution while one was released pending a summons for public order offences. The five juveniles were released and referred for JLOs.

GardaĆ­ added that the vast majority of people gathered in Dublin city last night were socialising responsibly and enjoying outdoor activity.

They reiterated their appeal to the public to support and comply with public health guidelines to avoid crowded areas and large gatherings.
