There have been 366 new cases of coronavirus in Ireland.

11 further deaths have also been reported - all of which occurred in November.

It brings the total number of deaths to date to 1,996, and the number of new cases to 68,686.

Of today's new cases, 84 were in Dublin, 44 in Limerick, 34 in Cork, 34 in Donegal, 24 in Roscommon and the remaining 146 cases were spread across 20 other counties.

As of this afternoon, there were 272 COVID-19 patients in Irish hospitals, including 35 in ICU.

The national 14-day incidence rate now stands at 121 per 100,000.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said: "I am increasingly concerned that the positive trends we had seen recently have not been maintained.

“The 5-day moving average of daily cases has increased from an average of 350 cases on the 11th November to 424 today.

“We have two weeks to continue in our efforts to drive down community transmission of this disease as much as possible. The lower the incidence the more flexibility the country will have in easing measures.”
