There have been 686 new cases of COVID-19 in the Republic.

One further death has also been reported today.

Of today's new cases, 278 were in Dublin, 49 in Limerick, 37 in Kildare, 32 in Louth, 31 in Donegal and the remaining 259 cases were spread across all remaining counties.

As of this afternoon, there were 726 COVID-19 patients in Irish hospitals, with 156 of those in intensive care.

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “We continue to see really high levels of compliance amongst the population and this is having a positive impact on the levels of disease in our communities.

"It is also having a positive impact on our hospitals – while last week there were 269 cases in healthcare workers and 4 outbreaks in our hospitals these represent a very significant reduction compared with the 839 cases and 15 outbreaks in the week to the 7th of February."

He said the country is now moving closer to further reopening of schools and the restart of non-COVID healthcare services.

214,384 people have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
