There have been 14 additional deaths related to COVID-19 and 359 more confirmed cases of the virus in Ireland.

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) says three deaths happened in March, 10 in February and one last November.

There has been a total of 4,333 COVID-19 related deaths here and 220,630 confirmed cases.

Of the cases notified today:

  • 157 are men / 193 are female
  • 66% are under 45 years of age
  • The median age is 34 years old

Some 159 cases are in Dublin, 25 in Westmeath, 21 in Louth, 21 in Galway and 19 in Meath.

The remaining 114 cases are spread across 19 other counties.

As of 8.00am, 498 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised - of which 116 are in ICU.

There have been 28 additional hospitalisations in the past 24 hours.

Latest figures show - as of February 27th - 435,895 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered.

This breaks down as 294,550 people who have received their first dose, and 141,345 people have their second.

Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said: "While the low number of cases reported today may be attributable to a weekend effect, it is nevertheless very welcome and represents the lowest number of cases reported on a single day since mid-December.

"While we continue to make good progress in Ireland, globally in the past week, the number of cases of COVID-19 has increased for the first time in seven weeks.

"We must not allow this virus the opportunity to do the same here.

"Please hold firm to the public health advice and together we can continue to protect and build on the progress we have made over the last two months".
