There have been another 15 coronavirus-related deaths in the Republic, as well as 92 new confirmed cases.

Today marks the first time the number of new cases has fallen below 100 since March.

The latest figures from the Department of Health show a total of 1,533 patients have now died in the Republic since the outbreak began.

There have also now been 24,048 cases confirmed since February.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said: “Today is the first time we have seen the number of confirmed cases fall below 100 since mid-March.

“While the past nine weeks have been particularly difficult for those cocooning, and for parents with young children, today’s numbers give reassurance that we have all learned and adopted new behaviours of handwashing, respiratory etiquette and social distance that will serve us well as we work together to re-open retail, business and society.”

Figures released earlier today showed 59 people were reported in ICUs across the country.

It's a drop from the highest point of 160 patients at the beginning of April.
