Dublin is likely to move to level 3 of restrictions in the next week after a review of the National Public Health Emergency Team, according to a government Minister.

218 cases were confirmed in the capital yesterday with 357 nationwide and 3 further deaths.

There are now 68 people in hospital with the disease, and 13 in intensive care units.

Currently, Dublin is on level 2, in line with the rest of the country, with a number of additional restrictions, including the remained closure of so-called 'wet pubs' and people advised not to leave the county.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe says that if the numbers continue increasing in Dublin, the capital will enter level 3 of restrictions.

'I think moving to level 3 is a real possibility. If that happens it will involve change and if we get that advice through from NPHET it's something the government will obviously take very seriously and will be consistent with the framework that was launched yesterday.'
