There have been a further 4,006 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ireland.

Latest figures also show that 5,212 people registered a positive antigen test through the HSE portal yesterday.

When the PCR-confirmed cases and positive antigen tests are combined, the cases figure for Tuesday is 9,218.

While there are 824 patients hospitalised with the virus, of which 79 are in ICU.

Meanwhile around one-quarter of five to 11-year-olds have been registered for COVID-19 vaccination.

New HSE figures show that 24% of the 482,000 children in the age cohort have been registered.

It means 366,000 have not been registered since the portal opened just over three weeks ago.

And three-quarters of the 12 to 15-year-old cohort have been registered – leaving 69,000 who opted against vaccination.

Take-up is much higher among 16 and 17-year-olds, at 92% - it means only 10,000 people in the cohort did not sign up.
