923 new cases of the Coronavirus have been recorded in Northern Ireland over the past 24 hours.

The North's Department of Health has also reported one additional death.

Since the pandemic began, 17,110 cases have been recorded there.

The death toll now stands at 587.

Earlier, Taoiseach Michael Martin and the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed concern about the growing number of cases in the north.

They agreed to monitor the situation closely.

Minister for Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys has said there is a lot of coordination between health authorities on both sides of the border.

The Cavan-Monaghan TD has also admitted the growing numbers in the north are concerning those living close to the border:

"There is a lot of coordination between the CMO's and I know that the Minister's for Health are continually in conversation with each other."

"It is very concerning and we are worried about it because the numbers have escalated."
