There have been 40 new cases of coronavirus confirmed in the Republic.

No further COVID-19 deaths have been reported to health officials.

Today's figures bring the total number of cases to 25,929, while the number of deaths since the pandemic began stands at 1,764.

Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, said many of today's cases were "spread across a range of different settings and age groups".

He said: "75% of cases are under 45 years of age, with a median age of 33 years.

"At least half of today’s cases were known close contacts of other confirmed cases.

“It remains vital that if a person is concerned that they have been in contact with a confirmed case or is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, that they isolate and come forward for testing without delay.”
