A crisis meeting is taking place later today between health officials and public representatives in Limerick over a recent spike in Covid-19 cases.

The Chief Medical Officer's concerned about the 'significant increase' in cases of covid 19 in Limerick, with an incidence rate of 411 cases per 100 thousand people in the past two weeks.

Tony Holohon says it's extremely important everyone in the region continues to stick to public health advice.

Meanwhile, the national five-day moving average of Covid-19 cases has dropped by three percent over the past week to 392.

465 new cases were confirmed last night by the Department of Health.

In hospitals there are 84 patients with the virus - down 16 percent on a week ago, while there's 30 patients in ICU.
