There have been 1,205 new coronavirus cases in the Republic.

Three further deaths have also been reported.

It brings the number of cases to date to 46,429, and the number of deaths to 1,205.

It's the second day in a row of a record new number of cases.

Of today's cases, 288 were in Dublin, 173 in Cork, 123 in Meath, 97 in Galway, 63 in Cavan and the remaining cases were spread across all other counties.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said: "The number of hospitalisations are increasing faster than the exponential growth modelling predicted.

"This indicates a rapidly deteriorating disease trajectory nationally."

Latest figures show 238 confirmed COVID-19 patients in hospitals, including 29 in ICU.

HSE chief executive Paul Reid today said hospitals are coping for now, but added that officials are very concerned about the situation as we head into the winter months.
