There have been a further 1,620 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.

Latest figures also show that 328 patients are hospitalised with the virus, of which 59 are in ICU.

It comes as 90% of the Irish population aged 18 and over have now been fully vaccinated.

While the seven millionth vaccine dose was due to be administered in Ireland on Friday.

Ireland has the 15th highest COVID-19 death rate in Europe, despite having the highest case rate.

Data from the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) shows Ireland recorded 434 cases for every 100,000 people in the past two weeks.

That is down around 70 on this day last week - however, Ireland remains significantly ahead of the other 29 countries on the list.

None of the other countries are reporting case rates higher than 400 – with Greece coming in second on 380 and Estonia in third on 367.
