There have been 783 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Ireland today.

It's the first time more than 700 cases have been reported in a single day since April 1st.

It comes amid a rise in cases of the Delta variant of the virus.

Dr Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, said: "The latest data is showing clear increases in incidence of disease right across the country.

"There is no question that the delta variant is having a considerable impact of transmission of COVID-19."

Latest figures show there are 73 patients with COVID-19 being treated in Irish hospitals today.

That figure includes 20 patients being treated in intensive care.

As of today, over 58% of all adults are now fully vaccinated, with a total of five million vaccine doses set to have been administered by the end of this week.
