The Department of Health have reported an additional 1,179 cases of Covid-19 in Ireland.

 

13 more people have been admitted to hospital with the virus, taking the total to 91.

 

Of these, 22 people are being treated in ICU, the same number as yesterday.

 

HSE National Lead for Testing and Tracing, Niamh O'Beirne, says some testing centres have been very busy in recent days:

 

"In Dublin yesterday did a record number for that centre. Wicklow is also very busy, Galway City up 25% and Louth and Donegal, they're really the testing centres that have been the busiest, so we are increasing capacity at the."

 

The Higher Education Minister says government's keeping an open mind when it comes to restrictions.

 

Simon Harris says further measures cannot be ruled out due to the threat posed by the Delta variant.

 

The issue will be raised at a meeting on Wednesday between the Taoiseach and Chief Medical Officer.
