The latest figures bring the total amount of cases here to 44,159, while the number of coronavirus-related deaths has risen to 1,830.

Of the latest cases, 70% are under 45 years of age, while the median age is 30 years old.

Regarding the nationwide distribution of cases, 190 are in Dublin, 141 in Cork, 62 in Wexford, 51 in Kerry, 50 in Clare and the remaining 317 cases are spread across all remaining counties.

As of 2pm today, 234 people are now receiving treatment in hospital for the virus after 22 new admissions in the past 24 hours.

Of those patients, 32 are in ICU.

Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, said: "We have widespread community transmission in the country.

"The spread of COVID-19 is a whole population issue, which is why we’re appealing to every single individual, every single family, household, organisation, workplace, to act on public health advice.

"You are the frontline defence against this disease.

Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said: “If we see community transmission patterns continuing to grow, we’re going to see more vulnerable groups being infected and the result of that, unfortunately will be further hospitalisations and deaths.

"Limiting your contacts, avoiding crowds and following basic public health measures will ultimately save lives.”
