The national incidence rate of the virus now stands at 226 per 100,000.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “We are making good progress and can see that many of the key indicators of disease levels in our communities are continuing to fall.

“However, we must remember that COVID-19 is still circulating at a high level and, we are still seeing positivity rates of around 15% in the community.

"As we see more of our children return to school next week, it is important that we continue to follow all of the public health guidance, including on the school run.”

Latest figures show a total of 226,291 people had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as of February 22nd.
