Ten more people have died from the coronavirus in Ireland.

There were a further 255 confirmed cases of the virus here today - bringing the total number cases to 1,819.

The patients are three women and seven men - nine patients are in the east of the country and one is in the south.

The median age of the patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who have died is 79 years - 68% are men and 32% are women.

There have now been 19 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland - up from just nine yesterday.

Earlier the Dáil stopped work briefly at 8.00pm to applaud all the country's healthcare workers.

They are sitting in reduced numbers in a bid to pass emergency measures in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

However, they paused the debate to applaud the frontline workers leading Ireland's response to the outbreak.

Meanwhile three COVID-19 patients have died in the North, bringing the total there to 10.

The UK total of coronavirus deaths has hit 584 - after more deaths in Scotland and Wales.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced three deaths in Scotland.

Public Health Wales said another six people had died and a further 113 people had been diagnosed with the disease.

The number of people who have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK now stands at 11,658.
