The Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) says five deaths were in March, 13 in February and six in "January or earlier".

There has been a total of 4,357 COVID-19 related deaths and 221,189 cases in Ireland.

Of the cases notified today:

  • 280 are men / 284 are female
  • 68% are under 45 years of age
  • The median age is 34 years old

There have been 233 cases in Dublin, 37 in Kildare, 30 in Meath, 25 in Donegal and 24 in Westmeath.

The remaining 217 cases are spread across all other counties.

As of 8am today, 489 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised - of which 114 are in ICU.

There have been 29 additional hospitalisations in the past 24 hours.

As of February 28th, 439,782 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered: 297,899 first doses and 141,883 second doses

Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said: "Through the hard work and sacrifice of the vast majority of people, key disease indicators continue on a positive trajectory.

"However, we are still seeing outbreaks in the community - including those linked to extended families, workplaces and funerals.

"We need to keep up our guard against the B117 variant of COVID-19, which we know is dominant in Ireland at present and highly transmissible.

"Our willingness to stick with the public health advice in our daily routine has brought us the progress that we can see today."

He added: "Together, through staying at home as much as possible, social distancing, hand washing and wearing face coverings, we can continue to drive down the spread of COVID-19."
