The Department of Health has confirmed that 443 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.

There are currently 43 people being treated in hospital for the virus.

There are 13 patients in intensive care for the sixth day in a row.

The HSE continue to be affected by the recent cyberattack and the daily case figure “may change due to future data review, validation and update.”

The five-day moving average in Ireland has risen to 372, compared to 332 this day last week.

The 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 of the population now stands at 97, while the seven-day moving average is 347.

It comes as the CEO of the HSE Paul Reid warned that the Delta variant of the virus poses "an obvious threat".

"But we do tackle it in a stronger position," he added.

Another 59,000 vaccines were administered yesterday, with more than 270,000 already given this week.

Over 40% of adults in Ireland now fully vaccinated and almost four million doses in total have been administered to date.
