There has been a further 329 new cases of COVID-19 and eight additional deaths.

Of the new cases, 86 are in Dublin, 41 in Louth, 34 in Donegal, 25 in Limerick and 17 in Kildare.

The 14 day incidence rate is now 85 per 100,000 people - up from 80 this day last week.

Donegal continues to have the highest incidence rate at 237, followed by Louth at 192.

Clare has the lowest rate at 24.

As of 2pm this afternoon, 196 COVID-19 patients were being treated in Irish hospitals - including 31 in intensive care.

Today's figures come as the Government unveils its vaccine rollout strategy.

The Health Minister says the first people could be vaccinated before the end of the year if the EU approves the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine next week.
