Westmeath, Louth, and Carlow have the highest incidence rates of Covid-19 in the country.

The country's 14-day incidence rate of Covid now stands at 1,266 cases per 100,000 people, while a month ago it was at 544, according to the latest report from the Health Protection Surveillence Centre.

 

Westmeath has the highest rate in Ireland, at 1,792.

That's followed by Louth, at 1,757, while Carlow is 1,709.

Every single county in Ireland now has a rate of over 1,000 per 100,000 people - meaning one in every 100 people has tested positive in the space of two weeks.

Wicklow has the lowest rate, at 1,004 - and Wexford's rate is 1,022.

 

Today, in hospitals there are 638 Covid patients - after a drop of 47 in the space of 24 hours.

But the figure remains 24 higher than a week ago.

The Mater Hospital in Dublin has 77 Covid patients - the highest in the country.

The latest figures show 126 Covid patients are in intensive care across Ireland.
