The number of people with Covid-19 in ICU is at its lowest level this year.

23 patients with the virus are currently in intensive care, while 59 people are in hospital - the lowest in nearly 9 months.

More than 2,000 people were in Irish hospitals five months ago with coronavirus.

The CEO of the HSE Paul Reid said the number of COVID-19 inpatients in hospitals continues "an amazing decline".

"Down to 59 cases with 23 of those in ICU. This is a remarkable benefit of our strong vaccination programme and public support overall," he said.

"We all deserve to cherish and protect these great moments."

He also thanked workers at St James's Hospital in Dublin for their work over the past 15 months.

The facility confirmed yesterday that it had no COVID-19 patients for the first time since March 2020.

It comes as 398 new cases of the disease have been confirmed in the Republic.
