There have been 324 new cases of coronavirus confirmed in the Republic.

Three further deaths have also been reported.

It brings the total number of cases since the pandemic began to 33,994, and the number of the deaths to 1,797.

Of today's cases, 81 have been identified as community transmission.

167 cases were in Dublin, 42 in Donegal, 34 in Cork, 13 in Monahan, 12 in Kildare, eight in Cavan, six in Limerick, six in Meath, six in Roscommon and five in Wicklow, with the remaining 25 cases in 11 counties.

Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “Public health doctors are coming across more cases arising from people who are close contacts of confirmed cases and are not restricting the movements.

“Remember that COVID-19 is highly contagious and you can be infectious without symptoms."

Figures from this morning showed there were 94 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Irish hospitals, with 16 patients in ICU.

Today's figures come as Donegal is set to be moved to level three restrictions, due to the increase in the COVID-19 rate there.
