There have been five further coronavirus deaths reported in Ireland.

Latest figures also show 38 new confirmed cases of the virus.

This brings the total death toll here to 1,664, with a total of 25,142 cases.

It comes as parts of the Government's plan to re-open the economy are expected to be sped up tomorrow.

The Government requested health officials give the go ahead to move forward some parts of the exit plan.

Cabinet ministers will meet tomorrow to approve moving to the second phase, which involves the re-opening of retail stores, small social visits in the home and an increase in the distance people can travel from their homes.

There's also going to be an increase in the number of people that can attend funerals, and a return to training for sports teams.

It comes amid criticism from politicians of the slow nature of the re-opening of the economy.

Meanwhile there's been a slight increase in the reproductive rate of the coronavirus here.

Health Minister Simon Harris says it's calculated as between 0.4 and 0.7 - compared to a 0.4 to 0.6 range last week.
