There has been a further 360 Covid cases.

110 people are being treated in hospital for the virus.

42 patients are in ICU.

Meeting Taking Place Over Cyber Attack

Meanwhile experts are briefing the Taoiseach and other Government leaders about the HSE Cyber Attack.

They are meeting with the National Cyber Security Centre and the HSE Chief Paul Reid.

Health officials still don’t know what information has been hacked and what will be done with it.

The HSE’s Colm Henry says it’s going to be extremely slow to get everything back up and running as normal.

"It's going to be a painstaking process, opening them system by system, machine by machine and platform by platform."

"To assess whether or not they've been invaded, encrypted or if information's been taken away."

"We have to do that in a very safe way, to protect the information that's  there, and to make sure as we re-open them, that the systems aren't still corrupted."
