There have been two more deaths from COVID-19 in Ireland.

The latest figures also show that there have been  22 further confirmed cases of the virus.

There have now been a total of 1,715 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland and 25,374 cases.

The HSE says it is working to identify any contacts the patients may have had, to provide them with information and advice to prevent further spread.

Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, said: "Of the 22 confirmed cases we are reporting to you today, nine of these were diagnosed in people under the age of 35.

"It is important for us all to remember that COVID-19 is a disease that can affect everyone, of any age or background. No one should feel that this is a disease that does not affect them."

"This virus is highly infectious and, as a result, the return of widespread community transmission remains a very real risk.

"To protect us all, especially our oldest and most vulnerable, personal preventative behaviours such as good and frequent hand washing, social distancing and respiratory etiquette remain as crucial as they were at the outset of this crisis."
